Belly Full

With a belly full of turkey
And a slightly tarnished hat
She laid down in the sitting room
Feeling somewhat fat
I shall eat no more this day
And neither shall I booze
I’ll pull my hat over my eyes
And have a gentle snooze
But somebody made cocktails 
And they broke out the mince pies
And then they opened chocolates 
Before her very eyes
By the time the carol singers
Stood outside the door
She was almost certain 
She could eat and drink no more
But then they played some party games 
While granny snored and farted
Charades were loud and noisy
Just to get the party started
Then mum made turkey sandwiches
And rather lethal punch
She thought they may be hungry 
As it was three hours since lunch
With a belly full of turkey
And some tinsel round her head
She mused, bemused, that Christmas 
Made her wish that she was dead
