Christmas - Hope Yours Was Better
[author and source unknown]

Eggnog, tinsel, falling snow
Buttered rum and mistletoe
Christmas trees and hanging lights
The sound of carolers fills the night


Shopping hours long and hard
Visa phones and cancels your card
Unpaid bills and mounting debts
Family gathers - depressions sets


Drinking starts, harsh words are said
Dysfunction rears its Yuletide head
Arguments turn to bouts of shovin'
Drunken brother punches cousin


Tree tips over, popping lights
Curtains catch, house ignites
No one hears the reindeer cries
Wedged in chimney - Santa dies
