Christmas poem by H.Belloc - Belloc - 12-04-2008

<b>The Sailor's Carol
</b>Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel!
A Catholic tale I Have to tell!
And a Christian song I have to sing
While all the bells in Arundel ring.

I pray good beef and I pray good beer
This holy night of all the year,
<b>But I pray detestable drink for them
That give no honour to Bethlehem</b>.

May all good fellows that here agree
Drink Audit Ale in heaven with me,
And may all my enemies go to hell!
Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel!
May all my enemies go to hell!
Noel! Noel!

(Hilaire Belloc, The Four Men)

That's awesome. Someone needs to set it to music and we can use it as a drinking song.
