The City’s 12 Days of Giving – A Poem

‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the City,
There were prizes aplenty and all oh so pretty,
There were electronics and photoshoots and dinners for four,
There were sweet treats and holiday meats and vouchers galore.

 Don’t yet have a tree? Then do not delay,
There’s a tree to be won on the very first day.
With a donation to charity there’s no room for grinches,
There’s a flatscreen up for grabs (50 whole inches!).

 On the very last day, the ultimate prize to be sought – 
A two night stay at a luxury resort.
And all of those prizes at a click of a mouse,
You don’t even have to leave your house.

 So much turkey, it will leave you napping,
All the bows you could want for your holiday gift-wrapping.
There’s lunch with your boo…Shall I go on?
There’s even a festive gift basket for mom.

 On Facebook and Instagram is where to go,
You tag a new friend and comment “gift emoji” below.
It really is that simple; that’s all there is to do,
…But you mustn’t forget to “like” us first too!

 With 24 lucky winners, your chances are good,
Now go tell a friend, if you think you’ve understood.
Enter and, who knows, it might save you a buck,
Happy Christmas to all and to all good luck!
