A Hazardman Christmas

By Dr Robert Long from Humandymensions


It’s time again for the Christmas parade

Pull out the old costumes, plans must be made

The committee gathers to put things in together

Considering all things, even the weather.


What about ‘elf n safety’ says one of the mob

‘You must be joking’ says Dazza, ‘shut ya gob’

But up stands Hazardman, saviour of the day

‘You have to follow regulations, you’ll go to gaol they say’


So we trawl through proceedings and look at each part

Hazardman says this a SWMS, this is a fun start

But wait he calls out, ‘Mary, look where she’s sat’

‘I have to save her, she needs a hard hat’


‘She’s sitting up high, nearly one point eight’

‘She needs a hard hat a fall is her fate’

So the committee as lemmings driven by fear

Agree to the hard hat, Hazardman is here.


‘Riding a donkey is dangerous stuff’

We need ‘elf n safety’ ya can’t get enough

‘And what about Joseph?’ ‘sandals won’t do’

‘Joseph needs steel caps’ says Hazardman on cue.


‘And see what they’re wearing for hazardous traffic’

‘High viz over those tunics will look terrific’

Reflectors for the donkey front and back’

‘Now’ says Hazardman, ‘They’ll be safe on the track’


hazardmanAnd so it came to pass, as the committee decided

Mary and Joseph were ‘elf an safety’ paraded.

Hazardman had saved the sacred procession

And the story of Jesus, lost in succession


And the lesson learned when this news broke

Hazardman is a dork and ‘elf n safety’ is a joke
