12 Green Days of Christmas

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love said to me

“I’m glad we bought a fresh turkey, and a proper Christmas tree”.

On the 2nd day of Christmas much laughter could be heard,

as we tucked into our turkey, a most delicious bird.

 On the 3rd day we entertained the people from next door,

the turkey tasted just as good as it had the day before.

 Day four, relations came to stay; poor Gran is looking old,

we finished up the Christmas pud and ate the turkey cold.

 On the 5th day of Christmas, outside the snowflakes flurried,

but we were nice and warm inside for we ate the turkey curried.

 On the 6th day, I must admit, the Christmas spirit died,

the children fought and bickered, we ate turkey rissoles – fried.

 On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love he did wince,

when he sat down at the table and was offered turkey mince.

 Day 8, the nerves were getting frayed, the dog has run for shelter,

I served up turkey pancakes with a glass of Alka Seltzer.

 On day 9, our cat left home, by lunchtime Dad was blotto,

he said he had to have a drink to face turkey risotto.

 By the 10th day, the booze had gone (accept our homemade brew),

as if that was not bad enough – we suffered turkey stew.

 On the 11th day of Christmas, the Christmas tree was moulting,

the mince pies were as hard as rocks and the turkey was revolting.

 On the 12th day, my true love had a smile upon his lips, the guests had gone,

the turkey too and we dined on fish and chips!

 Love our food – no waste here!
