The 12 Days of Christmas

Posted by on December 15, 2012

On the twelfth day of Christmas I found this in Sand Creek…

Twelve ginnip for eating,
Eleven beautiful sunsets,
Ten palm trees,
Nine kaboura biting,
Eight marabunta,
Seven skits rehearsing,
Six busy teachers,
Five mosquitoes,
Four months no water,
Three brand new buildings,
Two volunteers,
And a mango in a mango tree!

(For the uninitiated: ginnip are a small, green fruit I’ve grown very fond of; kaboura are small biting insects I’m decidedly not fond of; marabunta are kinda like wasps, only all black and more painful)
