The Festive Feasting

Christmas time for peace and joy
oh, look mum another toy
can I have sweets, there’s a bunch?
not until you’ve had your lunch.

Dinner comes, is there enough?
one hour later all are stuffed
have a rest or sleep all we
must be ready for our tea.

Buns and pastries, cake and pies
biscuits and trifle before your eyes
where to go, where to start
think I’ll have a lemon tart.

More cake later, more buns too
chocolate and nuts, just me and you
the rest have gone, they tried their best
now they must go home to rest.

It’s late now, just one more bite
another trifle then goodnight
in the morning start at ten
and do it over once again.

Can’t we just give it a miss?
Can’t we just have fish and chips?
