Christmas Dinner

A Christmas dinner that can’t be beat
Here is the menu of what we’ll eat

Mashed potatoes whipped smooth and fluffy
Green bean casserole; nice and crunchy

Pickles and olives on a perfect relish tray
Cranberry delight that’s been chilling all day

Sweet potatoes such tasty treats
Hot rolls steaming both white and wheat

Homemade honey butter and strawberry jam
A gorgeous honey glazed Christmas ham

Turkey and noodles are piping hot
A fuzzy naval salad; I almost forgot 

A slow roasted turkey golden brown
And broccoli rice casserole; pass it around
For dessert we’ve a variety of tasty treats
Tons of scrumptious goodies to eat

Chocolate chip cookies and brownies so sweet
Four kinds of pies including minced meat

It’s all there so fill up your plate
I’m getting mine, I can hardly wait

    This poem is really neat, the way you melded your sentences together to rhyme your words at the end. And yum, yum, such a table sprea of all one would expect for a Christmas dinner. Sincerely, Love, Moses

    Poetry has made me laugh and poetry has made me cry, but poetry has never caused my stomach to talk to me, so loudly inside (Until now). As great a poem Lolita as the cullinary spread (Excuse me a moment Lolita, your honey butter and strawberry jam is sliding off my bread). Best Wishes Always, Bill

    Ok, now I'm absolutely starving! Trouble is I just found out that I'm probably allergic to wheat, so I have to avoid some of those delicious goodies. I'm glad I can enjoy them through your yummy poem though! ~Juliane
