Feeling stuffed
And hungover
Unwashed dishes
And on the stove a
Stain you don’t
Remember making
During the cooking
And turkey baking

Floor is covered
In wrapping and crumbs
And underwear
That could be Mum’s
But at least the kids
Are still asleep
And the toys remain
In a scattered heap

It’s an overindulgence
Full of stress
A surfeit of food
And a crazy mess
So on Boxing Day
Run a nice warm bath
And forget about
The aftermath
