Daily Christmas Poem: Day 10, 10th December

Today's poem uses the suggestion 'Over-eating' from 'The King of Nonsense', Colin West. Thank you, Colin!

I Spy Christmas Pie

Frederick Fortescue Frodberry Fry

baked all of Christmas Day into a pie

there was turkey and stuffing and chocolate and cake

there was pudding and custard and salmon and steak

there were crackers and ribbons, sleighbells, and stars

there was tinsel and holly and glitter from jars

there were baubles and crackers and slices of ham

there was Christmas TV and some weird homemade jam.

The Christmas Day pie filled us up, fit to bust

with all of the trimmings stuffed under its crust

and when we were groaning, each with a full belly

he called “Who’s for lashings of Boxing Day Jelly?”
