At Rocketseed we are real advocates for making email personal, and believe that email has to evolve from “batch and blast” where one message goes to all. Unfortunately at Christmas, all too often we see friends and family making similar errors with their Christmas mails, sending the same message to all in a round-robin news update. So, we thought it we’d poke a bit of harmless fun at the senders of such mail, and wrote this short festive poem as a gentle tongue-in-cheek warning about keeping your Christmas messages personal this year.
Poem time is here once more,
With Christmas trash and tales to bore.
‘The year was great!’ ‘We’ve done sooo much’
With (yawn) and (yawn) and such and such.
We thought you’d really like to know,
Our trivia and tales of woe
The kids are ‘x’ the grandkids ‘y’
Fill in the blanks yourself then cry.
So…. haven’t we got sooo much news!
New car…new house….a death…..a cruise
The year’s been hectic – all too much
We had no time to get in touch!
But our guest room is now underway-
You really all must come and stay.
I cannot stand such Christmas pap
These mails ‘to all’ are just so cr@p
the personal touch is all you need
With love from all at Rocketseed.
