A Penguin Poem

December 27, 2018


Tom and Tony were penguin brothers
Closer than any penguin other
They were getting excited for the festive season
For a very good reason
They got the best gifts every single year
Their parents worked hard to spread Christmas cheer
All the presents would be shiny and new
Wrapped up nicely inside their igloo
But this year, not long before Christmas day
Tom turned to Tony to say
“We should get something special for mum and dad!”
“Yes!” Tony said and thought harder than he ever had
However, every gift they thought of, just wasn’t right
The two penguin brothers stayed up all night
Until finally Tony realised and gave a shout
“I know just the person to help us out!”
“That man at the North pole, he’ll know!”
Tom nodded happily and they decided to go
So, the brothers marched in the cold wind
They waddled out with heads down, very determined
The brothers kept going through the icy cold
Trying their best to be bold
The night quickly swooped in over their heads
And soon the little penguins wished for their beds
Meanwhile at home their parents began to worry
“Wherever they’re going, I hope they’re back in a hurry!”
Their mum said, “they must have gone out to play”
“Don’t worry” Dad said “I’m sure they’ll be back for Christmas day”
Finally, in the dark distance Tom saw a warm light!
He fluffed his feathers excitedly as it burned bright
Tony eagerly flapped his flippers, almost slipping
“Don’t trip!” his brother said as the wind nipped
The brothers eventually reached the north pole grotto
And from inside they heard a booming “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
Tony’s eyes shone as next to the fire that roared
Was a red suited and black booted Santa Claus!
Santa’s eyes twinkled as he invited the brothers in
And as he heard their question, he gave a grin
“We want to give our parents what they need!”
Tom exclaimed, “Could you help us, please?”
Santa chuckled and gave an understanding sigh
He offered them cosy blankets and a mince pie
“It’s brave of you to travel here alone,
But how do you think your parents are feeling at home?”
Tom and Tony didn’t have a clue
“I’m sure they’re missing both of you”
The brothers, though they were warm and snug
Realised they just wanted to give them a hug
“Your love is the only thing they want to receive,
Now let’s get you home since it’s the night of Christmas eve”
Tom and Tony waddled to leave and get on their way
Santa chuckled again, “it’s too cold to walk, we’ll take my sleigh!”
The brothers gazed over the side to see the view
Their flippers flapped excitedly as the sleigh flew
Never before had they seen such an amazing sight
As nine reindeer galloping in the air at night!
Finally, Santa directed the reindeer to an igloo
“Goodbye Tom and Tony! I’ve got deliveries to do!”
Santa and his sleigh rushed off back into the night sky
The brothers grinned and shouted back “Thank you, goodbye!”
Within seconds, the big red sleigh was out of sight
Tom and Tony shuffled themselves towards the igloo light
They opened their flippers and ran in as fast as they could!
Their parents were up and worrying, as parents would
But their little penguins ran in and had a cuddle
The penguin family had the warmest penguin huddle
As the clock struck midnight, they were being tucked into bed
“Merry Christmas” Tom and Tony happily said
Aimed towards children obviously!
