The Worst Christmas


The worst Christmas
Was when Mum was in hospital
And Dad, bless him,
Made a right pig’s ear
Of the Christmas turkey.

On Christmas Eve he dressed up as Santa
Red coat, big bushy beard -
And Mum dressed up as a reindeer
Big antlers, red nose -

And it was all going so well
I was pretending to be asleep
As Dad crept in, when
Shriek!
Clatter clatter clatter
Thump!
Mum fell off the roof.

Don't you just hate it when that happens?

I bought Hazel some crampons for Xmas but still she refuses to climb up there!

Women eh?
