The Magic Of Twixmas


Though Christmas is over
Remain in good cheer
For there’s plenty of food
To see us through to New Year

There are chocolates aplenty
A variety of cake
There are mince pies and stollen
(That I didn’t bake)

So much leftover turkey
Of that there’s no doubt
(But alas linger on
Some uneaten sprouts)

There are crisps and cashew nuts
And some more bombay mix
And to wash it all down
A glass of Rioja (or six)

So eat, drink and be merry
Without getting fatter
For until January
Calories do not matter

    An apt poem James. I best get going. That panettone won’t eat itself.

      It certainly won’t, but I might if I get to it first…

    Super advice!! That bowl of candy was mocking me each and every time that I passed it — no more. Game on!

      You can’t let the candy win…
