Easter Off :)


She must have  a hollow leg

She’d eaten fifteen easter eggs

A chocolate bunny, ears and all

Washed down with some alcohol

A nice bottle of cabernet

To celebrate this special day

She had decided not to cook

She really didn’t give a fuck

She sat and watched ‘The wedding singer’

As they came looking for dinner

‘Did you not cook a leg of lamb?

Or even a boil a piece of ham?’

They thought that she had gone mad

They looked bewildered at their dad

As he joined her on the settee

And asked ‘Any chocolate for me?’

The children thought they’d gone too far

When they scoffed two jumbo bounty bars

A yorkie and a caramel,

A bag of mini eggs aswell

They  stood and looked on in defeat

‘What are we meant to eat?’

She said, munching a Malteser

‘There’s fish fingers in the freezer’

‘But it’s Easter  sunday, where’s the roast?

All we’ve had today is toast’

‘There’s a menu out by the door, and

anyway, you don’t live here anymore

If it’s roast you want, go to the pub

‘Cos me and your da are going to the club

But if you do decide to cook…

Don’t forget to do the washing up’.
