In Spirit of The Holiday Season

In Spirit of The Holiday Season

A Poem by Fran Marie

 


Oh,joy to the world
I haven't seen a fruitcake
yet this year.
 
I still have nightmares
from last Christmas eve
from the one I received
yes, oh, my
 it brought me to tears
 
It came by way of mail
It was quite heavy and ugly
 and most definitely Stale!
 
So in spirit of the holiday season
being the nice vicious person I am
I gave it to my neighbors next door
now, gee wilkers whiz!
I don't understand
why they won't talk to me anymore?
 
I suppose it was the fruitcake,yep
they will turn your friends into foes
Why, what they're good for?
No one knows!
 
With all that goop spread
right on top
and filled with stuff
to make your heart stop
 
Oozing running down the side
to make you sick
Heavy enough I surmise
to sink a ship!
 
Maybe just maybe
one day, and gosh i hope soon,
we'll send that gawd-awful fruitcake
to the other side the moon
 
and by some magical power unclear
for the benefit of all mankind here
we'll make that dreadful fruitcake
 forever disappear

LOL Fran. I think that Fruit Cake tops my list of yucky. ROTFL I keep thinking that there has to be people that actually do like them or they would not be a traditional holiday goodie, but for the life of me I can't figure out what they like about them. Great write and a wonderful kick off to our holiday season.

I am sorry I have not dropped in before now but 'life' ya know? LOL

Hugs,
Lesa

You are welcome dear Fran.
dear Fran... I must admit that the commercial fruitcakes are difficult to digest. And the homemade fruitcakes are not best for the elderly ... to digest if the fruit is hard as a rock.... maybe prunes could be used. Love the humor and the Cartoon character. truly, Pat

Thanks for reading. Chris..much appreciated..
and Merry Christmas..
This is a great piece of fun & merriment! I wonder how they make a freshly-baked cake that's already tasting stale? Love the "moon" remark (2nd to last stanza) -- very well stated & perfect conclusion. Love the way this shows your playfulness!
