Momma starts to yell,
And Daddy tries to quell.
The Sisters pull their hairs,
While the dog pisses in the tree well.

Bulbs on fire,
Smelling a little like burning tire.
The angel on the tree
Barely hangs by a wire.

Try to keep a smile
When pulling out a sock in argyle.
One Sister hoards her gifts
In a neat little pile.

The other screams and yell
Drowning out the door bell
Making this place
Feel like hell.

Hurray! Christmas is here?
My eyes forms a tear.
This peace on Earth, charity for all;
forget it, I want a beer.

      Pass me a beer too! That's a great poem. =)
