Ugly Christmas Sweaters

Ugly Christmas Sweaters

A Poem by ~ Stefanie ~

They are awful looking! Haha


The scratchy wool itches my skin.

The ugly colors of brown and grey as tin

Odd shaped buttons that always come loose

These sweaters enlarge the shape of my caboose


Odd prints like reindeer, snowmen and stripes

When my dog sees me coming he jumps and yipes

Sometimes there are snowflakes that make them kind of cute

But either way I would like to give these sweaters the boot


My grandma always buys them in the cheapest of stores

Thank goodness she doesn’t expect me to where them to the shore

I’m thankful only once a year I have to wear these things

Cause they really are awful and they make my eyes sting!

I think somewhere I missed this little gem of a poem...glad that I corrected that. I may not have a sweater like that...but I do have a vest that I think is tacky. But they all mean well and want to please us don't they?? Somewhere along the line I think that they forget to move with the styles..but it's all good because it shows they care...and are thinking of us (even though we have outgrown those type of sweaters) lol Soo glad that I caught up to this little slice of humor..really needed it..thank you soooo much for sharing this one with us. (again sorry it took me awhile)

That was so true. Grandma does the same thing! Had a good laugh at how true your poem is.

A few small errors, one, you spelt "colour" incorrectly. Two, there is not a word "Cause" in the sense you wrote it, it is properly spelled "Because". A delightful poem though. My own Grandmother used to knit we kids ugly Christmas sweaters. When she passed away, and I was 17 at the time, I kept them all and have them still. Now they have become precious memories of her.

I like the easy rhythm and rhyme which makes the poem enjoyable to read. Nice holiday cheer! Well done!

Hmm...T'was a nice poem...Very simply at all parts...But anyway, Christmas isn't about the sweaters that people wear...I've also seen some dudes here wearing awful Christmas sweaters but never mind, maybe it's their style of clothing, haha!
