Xmas Well Spent~by Patrick Kevin O’Shea



Xmas Well Spent

Spent all borrowed money
Buying frenzy so bespoke
Maxed out on the plastic
Now starving, skint an broke!
So busy wrappin n stackin
Beside this Xmas tree
Then flashin postin n trackin
On F.B.for all to see
No food in the pantry
Turkey bones in the bin
Up the telly volume
Drownin stomachs rum- ber-lin
The cat is so disgusted
Good grief! how absurd!
No food in Tiddles cat dish
He’s to fat to catch birds
Pulled all the crackers
Old jokes told and well spent
Emptied the piggy bank
Full of next months rent
Searching behind sofas
For lost money to free
To go buy Tetley tea-bags
For a nice cuppa-tea😮
