Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Family Christmas

Hoping one and all have had a Happy Christmas and sending best wishes for the New Year:

I asked for Scotch this Christmas
A wee dram just for me
To sip at leisure Christmas Day
In festive company
Whilst kids around the fireplace
Played with their brand new toys
The Mrs scorched the turkey
And got a bit annoyed

Aunt Ethel turned up smiling
At all who past her by
And Uncle Fred, her other half
With twinkle in his eye
Told tales of how it had been
Back in the good old days
With booming voice announcing that “Those kids are spoilt today”

So teens became disgruntled
With heads down in their phones
Not speaking much bar the odd grunt
That said ‘Leave us alone’
And Grandma started nagging
At Grandad, bless his soul
Who simply wanted a quiet life
Not fetch the bloomin’ coal

But round the Christmas table
As crackers burst and popped
Most were so merry and too full
To see our sister drop
The clanger of the season
That caused brother to go
Upsetting him with poor timed joke
That battered his ego

Less then when after dinner
Past Queen on the TV
Monopoly came out again
For rounds of rivalry
And so the Christmas spirit
Became a festive fight
That doubtless all will soon forget
And say was a delight

Cos families and Christmas
Are like water and wine
In essence both just opposites
But somehow still align
For jolly is the season
And that’s what it shall be
But now perhaps you’ll see why I
Asked for some good whiskey!
