An Etymologically Dubious Poem About Boxing Day

The day after Christmas
Is called Boxing Day
Although quite why it’s called this
I just couldn’t say

But perhaps after a day
With excited offspring
We need to let off some steam
And step into the ring

After all that excess
It’s a nice change of pace
To put on some gloves
And punch someone in the face

I know I’d prefer
To try the noble art
Than eat one more sprout
(Which can make me f… erm… feel a little bloated…)

Christmas Day might well come
With a fabulous lunch
But the following day
Packs a much bigger punch
