Boxing Day

Christmas day now over,
The turkeys now all dead.
While the bloated celebrators
Sleep their gorging off in bed.

No matter what it cost them.
(Though it cost the turkeys more),
They’d enjoyed the Christmas spirit
They’d invited through their door.

With plastic in their wallets
To finance their spending spree,
They ensured that all they’d purchased
Was on show for all to see.

They let family, friends and colleagues
Know what Christmas really means,
That by spending, spending, spending
You can purchase all your dreams.

Alas for all tomorrows
They may have to scrimp and save,
While the lucky Christmas turkeys
All lie peaceful in their graves!

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

Happy New Year, You Poor Turkeys
Ah, always a delight, even on the topic of dead turkeys!
I wish you all the best in the year ahead (rhymes with serene, obscene, clean-bean, tureen ...) 2014!

Let 'em eat pork!
For some reason, I DO feel sorry for the turkey's...but nary a thought for the poor pigs.

I'd eat Ham for the holidays...but too much sodium! It's a conundrum for sure!

Hope you had a MERRY CHRISTMAS and that the New Year will be good for you and yours.

All the best my friend!

Christmas Spirits

Even the wine has plastic stoppers
I am just being cheap... cheap-cheap
But there's no going cordon bleu
with the budget that I must keep
Still one can stay randy drinking the brandy
with lots of cheap red wine and beer
then when the morning comes without warning
It's hard to stand upright I fear

You can go stuff the turkey mine came cooked
pity there wasn't a swine in sight
You can have the old bird I think it's absurd
but for bacon I'd put up a fight
As for the topping without off to sleep dropping
there were lots of sweet things on the side
Not to leave out the one chap with gout
there was lots that he left that I spied

just spotted your post Ivor so chipped in with a shitty ditty of the cuff xx
