Seasonal sojourn over counties
Carting loads of Christmas bounties.
‘Did we remember a gift for Terry?
We can always pick up a bottle of sherry.
‘But he didn’t even send us a card.
It’s good will season – don’t be hard!
‘Will we have to stay all night?
Look, Boxing day don’t mean a fight.
And so the joyous chat continues,
Straining nerves and straining sinews.
The one good thing to bring good cheer –
It only happens once a year!
