I know everyone is busy right now, but thought we could attempt a challenge of Christmas Lunes

The lune is an American form of poetry similar to the haiku. One way of writing a lune is to count the syllables: thirteen syllables are arranged in 5/3/5 format, five syllables in the first line, three syllables in the second, and five in the third. A second variation of the lune is to count the words: three words in the first line; five words in the second line; three words in the third line.

Poetry contains almost all you need to know about life
