    Default Soot Prints

    A nice little Christmas poem and every word is true.

    This is exactly how it happened at my Daughter-in- law's one Christmas

    Soot Prints
    Christmas just round the corner
    And Santa is stocking his sleigh
    My chimney I wept
    Just aught to be swept
    Or Santa will not find his way

    Just then my new carpet arrived
    And my chimney? Well blow me just hush
    For the cat in one leap
    The chimney did sweep
    With his tail puffed up like a brush

    He eventually came down from the chimney
    Leaving soot prints on sofa and chairs
    I let out a scream
    The stair carpet is cream
    Donít let him go racing upstairs

    We caught him and washed off his paws
    And wrapped him up warm in a towel
    Now heís cosy and snug
    Asleep on his rug
    Not even a stir or a scowl

    The carpet is laid and the chimney is clean
    Soot prints have been washed away
    Santa will call
    Leaving presents for all
    May peace be with you Christmas day
