My twelve days of Christmas

This is a poem that was sent to me from my Auntie in Scotland. I've no idea who wrote it or where she got it from but I thought you might enjoy it.

On the first day of Christmas my true

love said to me..."I'm glad we bought

fresh turkey and a proper xmas tree."

On the second day of xmas, much laughter

could be heard as we tucked into our

turkey, a most delicious bird

On the third 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

xmas pud and ate the turkey cold.

On the fifth day of xmas, outside the

snowflakes flurried. But we were

nice and warm inside, for we had our

turkey curried

On the sixth day, I must admit the

xmas spirit died. The children fought

and bickered, we ate turkey rissoles fried

On the seventh day of xmas, my true love

he did wince, when he sat down at the

table and was offered turkey mince

Day eight, and nerves were getting frayed,

the dog had run for shelter, I served up

turkey pancakes, with a glass of Alka Seltzer

On the ninth day our cat left home, by

lunchtime dad was blotto. He said he had

to have a drink to face turkey rissotto

By the tenth day the booze had gone

(except our homemade brew) and if that

wasn't bad enough we suffered turkey stew

On the eleventh day of xmas, the

xmas tree was moulting, the mince

pies were as hard as rock and the turkey

was revolting.

On the twelfth day, my true love

had a smile upon his lips. The guests

had gone, the turkey too, and we

dined on fish and chips.

LOL, for some reason Turkey does not seem so appealing any more.
