Twas The Day After Thanksgiving ....

Real Estate Agent with Albuquerque Homes Realty 16572

Twas the day after Thanksgiving and all through the house
Leftovers were plentiful for me and my spouse
The ham on our biscuit the turkey on bread
The Yams still delicious and kept us well fed

This day after Thanksgiving should all be for rest
There’s Football on TV I’ll crash and I’ll nest
Not so fast as she rattled my roost
Christmas is coming and it’s time to reboot

She threw open the shutters and looked upon me
Saying bring in that Santa, the lights and the tree
My eyes must have rolled to the top of my cap
Cause I felt a hard strike a pop and a snap

Get off the dang sofa and get into the garage
There’s boxes in the attic and don't forget Claus
So we turned off the TV and cranked up the tunes
The tree was unboxed and brought back to new

The wreath and the manger both found their spot
It’s looking like Christmas is not so far off
My bride is now happy and admit I am too
Cause Christmas is coming and decorations are through.

Thanks John, you got the rhyme scheme down it seems.  Sometimes people count the days until they can hang up all the Christmas decorations.

John - good poetry effort and a pretty typical story line for most of us, I think.
