|Sidespin - A Christmas Carol|
"It's a good thing friends of ours called out
From the piste," said Stephen.
"We asked them what's the fuss about,
And we could scarce believe them.
"They said he climbed the mountainside,
Where he often lingers.
They saw him ski down all wide-eyed,
Spinning rackets on his fingers.
"'Sounds like Jez all right,' we thought
And hurried out to find him,
But things were getting very fraught
And the snow was all but blinding.
"When Tracey heard the sirens go,
She feared the worst and cried some;
She found two skis stuck in the snow,
Two rackets right beside them."
An escape like that is quite bizarre,"
It's really quite astounding;
He's holding forth down in the bar
With reporters all around him.
"They're snapping here and snapping there -
A pack of mad piranhas;
Jez is standing on a chair,
Handing out bandanas!"
