Daily Christmas Poem: Day 4, 4th December

Today's poem was inspired by 'Brussels Sprouts', suggested by Emma Susan Gemmell. Thank you!



But They're Better for Your Teeth


Last Christmas

just for a giggle

I ate a WHOLE box of Mum’s favourite chocolates

(the ones with the golden wrappers, the ones

which are just about

sprout-sized)

I kept the golden wrappers

I kept the paper cases

I kept the pretty gift box

THEN

I found a bag of sprouts

In the fridge.


It took me all Christmas Eve to wrap them.

It took until New Year's Day for Mum to forgive me.
