Beatles Yesterday song from YouTube
Christmas Day Pa threw all my new toys away Now my friends won’t want to come and play Cos I was naughty yesterday Suddenly All the gifts disappeared from ‘neath the tree Now the carpet’s bare for all to see Pa snapped at me so suddenly Why I had to drown our old cat I cannot say She fell in the loo so I flushed the cat awayyyyyyyyyyy Christmas Day Pa threw all my new toys away Santa delivered them on his red sleigh But when Pa is mad, there’s no leeway Purely Fictional write inspired by hearing Yesterday on the radio 09-11-17

AWesome parody, Jan. Did you know that Xmas parodies were some of my very first poems I wrote long before I ever called myself a poet? Funny! It reminded me of the ones I used to write.

I had fun with the song but it would be sad if a parent did this to a child:-( hugs jan xx

Sad.great read though! Inspired this:... Ba humbug! That's what I'd say to a Pa that threw my gifts away. Change the turkey for the cat. I wonder what your Pa would have to say to that? Christmas all about having fun, where was Mum? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (I would ask if this wasn't fiction).

Ha! In a way this is sad too, Pa threw away all your new toys, that is sad...especially on Christmas day! But it is a very funny poem my friend, you have surely tickled and maybe even broke my funny bone! What an ingenious and well thought out write, oh it fits in very well with the song Jan...nicely done Great Work!!
