Collaborative Poem 17 - The Real Christmas

Post by Bob Pacey » Thu Dec 22, 2011 9:21 pm

There’s prawns on the barbie and beer in the fridge
Christmas is coming and it’s ridgie didge.
Family will visit there’s sure to be a big fight
It will start in the morning and go into the night.

Old Uncle Rory will drink his fair share
and laugh as he tosses the kids in the air.
The new trampoline will claim a few bones
turning peals of giggles to agonised groans.

Aunite Mary is coming so that's not a good sign
she gets quite agressive when she gets on the wine.
Bills bringing his pig dogs that should be a real treat
and to top it all off the kelpie's on heat.

The chooks are not laying so no ham and egg dinner
The shops have all closed so we will all get a lot slimmer
The Christmas tree has got woodworm and is whilting to boot
Aunt Margaret has gone skinny dipping, what a hoot.

I have had a bit of a read myself, it is a shame with this one - there is some potential there I think. Bugger it, I will see if I can add another stanza.

What's worse is she's in there with Great Uncle Phil
who's also the husband of her sister Lil -
they're being quite naughty, that can't be denied.

and he's rarin' to fight with somebody today.

"Hey how are you Billy," says first cousin Jack,
but Billy decides to go on the attack.
Instead of a greeting and warm friendly chat,
poor Jack cops a right hook that knocks him down flat.

Then his girlfriend piles in with an old cricket bat
hit's uncle Rory for six with an almighty splat.
But Jack is a tough coot,he's quickly back on his toes
then he lands a straight left on uncle Phils nose.

Aunt Mary's all fired up so she joins in the race
there's kids and dogs flying all over the place.
Old Jack has recovered and heads for a rum
but trips on the tree and falls flat on his bum.
