Dog House Blog, One Day After Christmas!


One Day After Christmas. 

It's one day after Christmas
I'm crabby and I'm broke.
I'm so full of ham and fruitcake
I think I'm gonna croak.

It's nice to see the relatives
I wonder when they'll leave.
They've been camping in my bathroom
since early Christmas Eve.

They're eating everything in sight
and sleeping in my bed.
I been sacked out in the basement
with my spotted beagle, Fred.

The relatives have all gone out
and left their screaming brats.
The toilet bowl is all plugged up
and I can't find the cat.

It's Christmas time at my house,
the relatives are here.
They eat me out of house and home.
and drink up all my beer.

I love the decorations,
and the sleigh bells in the snow
But I wish those pesky relatives
would take their kids and go.

Those cookie crunchers fed the dog
a twenty pound rib of roast.
His feet are sticking in the air
like skinny old fence posts.

Now they're in a free-for-all,
the girls against the boys.
They're fighting over boxes
'cause they're bored with all their toys

My mother-in-law is snoring
in my favorite TV chair.
Those kids are stringing lights on her
and tinseling her hair

I oughta wake her up
before the fireworks begin.
But I wanna see those blue sparks fly
when they plug her in.

Hope everyone had a wonderful time and Happy Boxing Day to those who are celebrating.

  26. MOL! Your poem describes the Christmas many people had, poor things. We had a nice quiet one this year with no relatives. Of course all of our relatives are either at someone else's home or in the shelter. MOL!

  32. That is soooo funny Mollie - most likely because it's soooo true!! Ambercat has the important job of testing out spare beds for visitors but I don't doubt she would like them to push off too. Betty
