Twas The Day After Thanksgiving And All Through The House

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.

John,  We do roll from on holiday right into the other ... don't we?

Your poem is fun and creative.  Now I guess you can get back to the couch and watch Football??

Good morning John,

The Aleve has been taken, the boxes have been gotten out of the basement and now it is to the office to hide before I hear you missed a box.

Merry Christmas.

Darn, you're good!!! As a poet, hubby and positive thinker! I am geared up for Sunday, while Larry watches football. We have company coming tomorrow and don't want to be in the middle of the switch from fall to Christmas when they come over. And it takes me a couple of days.

John, We've got plenty of leftovers here too!  But no Christmas decorations put up as the cats have made it clear they'll disrupt any plans there!

The day after Thanksgiving is just perfect for me.  The wife is out shopping and I have the peace and quiet to work at home.

Hi John - Cool poem. I don't think Mary is going to start on the Christmas decorations for a week or so, which is good, because I'm still out of commission from yesterday.

Hoping you had a good Thanksgiving John McCormack  . It has been a crazy fall and i could have never guessed how busy I would be. I hope Debbie is recovering and you are doing well. I am sitting here fighting a cold and for the first time since Labor day taking a night to do nothing. I was suppose to head away for the weekend, but need to get better. That with the doc sticking needles in my knee Monday for my 6 month flex all shots, I am down and beat
