Boxing Day

Boxing Day Christmas over, Boxing day, Snow replaced by rain, Turkey eaten, Presents opened, Bones and wrapping remain. Silent carols, Muted bells, The candles all burned out, Bottle tops, Nutshells And gift tags lay round about. Glittered cards, Ribbons and bows, Tinsel, baubles and more, Unwanted gifts, Stale perfume, All strewn across the floor. The tree bare, Bulbs blown, Forgotten cracker jokes, Empty bottles, Hangovers Santa just some bloke. Party poppers, Paper hats, Plastic Jesus in his stable, Fallen cards, Holly leaves Litter the festive table. Melancholy Mistletoe, The anti-climax seems sad, But in my heart It will always be The best Christmas I've had.
