I am not a huge fan of comedian Paul Gilmartin (TBS's Dinner and a Movie) as he can get a little foul at times, but I have always enjoyed his Christmas poem. It is a little off color, but always gives me a chuckle, so here for your enjoyment, Paul Gilmartin's Christmas poem...
Eggnog, tinsel, falling snow
Buttered rum and mistletoe
Christmas trees and hanging lights
The sound of carolers fills the night
Shopping hours long and hard
Visa phones and cancels card
Unpaid bills and mounting debts
Family gathers; depressions sets
Drinking starts, harsh words are said
Dysfunction rears its yuletide head
Argument turns to shovin'
Drunken brother punches cousin
Tree tips over, popping lights
Curtains catch, house ignites
No one hears the reindeer cries
Wedged in chimney, Santa dies
Though he kicked and did perspire
His chestnuts roasted on an open fire.
It is just a little funny to me, I know I am sick! But I always get a little chuckle out of this, because we can almost all think of someone's family that is like this...To some extent.
Merry Christmas! (early)
