The chocolates have got teeth marks
and the tinsel has been mauled.
The presents have been bashed and chewed,
the Christmas tree looks bald.
There are baubles in the kitchen
and a stocking in the sink,
the fairy’s disappeared
– have we driven her to drink?
The lights are in a tangle,
they’ve been strewn across the floor.
The tree is artificial
but it’s shedding on the floor!
“What on earth has happened here?
That poor, old Christmas tree,
it’s totally dishevelled
and it’s littered with debris!”
“It looks like you attacked it
in a catnip-filled assault!”
“Who me?” replied the cat, surprised,
“It’s really not my fault.”
“I’m innocent. I’m blameless.
I’m as good as gold. You see,
I was curled up, sleeping deeply
but the tree… it fell on me!”
“I might be sitting here with
a bauble on my paw,
I caught that one especially
as a gift for Santa Claus!”
“And I’m fully out of catnip
– to that I must confess –
So human, run and grab some more
… and do clean up this mess!”
