Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Big Bang for Little Billy

This was the first Christmas
Billy was old enough to speak 
when he saw his gifts 
under the sparkling tree.
His parents were waiting
to hear what he’d say.
Billy laughed and jumped
and clapped his hands. 
With a big smile, he shouted
“Santa brought me these!” 
Then Daddy picked Billy up,
bounced him on his knee 
and whispered softly,
“There is no Santa, son.
There was a Big Bang 
while you were asleep.
And all your gifts landed
under the tree.

  1. I guess a fairy tale is a fairy tale. But, poor Billy
    will spend the rest of his life hearing a Big Bang
    expecting presents. But, then what is the true meaning of Christmas. Our Lord's Birthday.
