A Little Post-Christmas Humor

A little post-Christmas humor to help you adjust to life after the holidays …

‘Twas the Day After Christmas

Happy Holidays!

‘Twas the day after Christmas,
and all through the house,
Every creature was hurting…
even the mouse.

The toys were all broken,
their batteries dead;
Santa passed out,
with some ice on his head.

Wrapping and ribbons
just covered the floor, while
Upstairs the family
continued to snore.

And I in my T-shirt, new Sketchers and jeans,
Went into the kitchen and started to clean.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a little white truck, with an over-sized mirror.

The driver was smiling, so lively and grand;
The patch on his jacket said “U.S. POSTMAN.”

With a handful of bills, he grinned like a fox
Then quickly he stuffed them into our mailbox.

Bill after bill, after bill, they still came.
Whistling and shouting he called them by name:

“Now Dillard’s, now Broadway’s, now Penney’s and Sears
Here’s Visa’s and Mastercard’s and American Express’s – all here!!

To the tip or your limit, every store, every mall,
Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all!”

He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work.
He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.

He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road,
Driving much faster with just half a load.

Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer,
“ENJOY WHAT YOU GOT … YOU’LL BE PAYING ALL YEAR!”
