I couldn't, God help me, to shake from my mind an "off the wall" poem about the present times seen with the eyes of an everyday's "commoner" and the funny side of his tribulations.
First it was Thanksgiving with the turkey,
and a belly button smiling saying cheese,
With leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow
if you aren't fat enough and want to eat.
All the relatives arrived one by one
like they haven't eat before this visit,
getting through the food like the locust,
it was lucky they didn't eat the Christmas tree.
Noboby had recoveres from Merry Xmas
when with only a week or so of calm respit,
New Year came upon us with many bangs,
to bless a humongous hangover head split.
Fifteen days of dishes piled up and down
for an "Happy" mother to sort and clean,
and who, sweeping under the dinner's table found
a relative left behind by someone in the family.
The "season" shebang...thank for is gone,
with the customary football brawl and lose teeth's,
children with sticky fingers smiling at the presents
and parents with overdrew credit-cards menagerie.
Happy New Year!!! Happy New Year!!!
you happily wake up and start to scream,
if you are so happy the second day of January...
sorry...you are in the wrong house!!!
and 2007 already started to stink!

|Your poem is interesting.
I'm sotry that you got up on the WRONG side of 2007.
I'm having a great time, celebrating the beginning of a new year. .
I wish for you, "Worse luck," next year, but not with me.
