Christmas Crackers

 
For our third Firefly Christmas Advent treat, Sharon Tregenza, author of The Shiver Stone and The Jewelled Jaguar, shares her favourite Christmas funny poems:
 
 
Turkey bones and paper
empty bottles fill the bins.
But Christmas isn't over 
'til your shirt is free of pins.
 
***
 
Why not…
mix turkey DNA 
with a centipede, say
then we'll all get a leg
of the bird Christmas day.

She poked a frozen turkey
then turned around and said,
‘don't they get any bigger?’
‘No, Mam,’ he said. ‘They're dead.’
 
***
 
We collcted our gobbling turkey,
and settled it down for the night.
The next day we had it for dinner-
it sat next to me on the right.
