Christmas Unwrapped

After the dazzle of Christmas night
Comes the dry crackle of day
Predictable store returns and campaigns
Sale on all fitness and ornaments
Year-end clearance and ad nauseam reviews
Sickening fudge stuck to countertops
Tired eyes and growing thighs

Surprise, surprise

Christmas unwrapped is new and fresh
Coffee tables become helicopter landing pads
Kitchen islands become docking stations
For straight-haired girls wanting a curl
Chairs disappear from dining room tables
Making way for ping pong tournaments
Red ram trucks race down the halls
