Smells of the Season

by Pam Moll

JOY to the world
Going home for the holiday
Oh how I love the sounds
And smells of the season
Fighting with my in-laws
(no presents for those idiots)
Mom's cough, sick and miserable
Dad's drinking Southern Comfort
Baby screams all through dinner
Wants his SpongeBob doll RIGHT NOW
30-somethings at the kids table
Wrapping paper in the fireplace
Aroma of a chimney fire
(better dial 9-1-1)
Assassins playing Nintendo
Screams --Who left the seat up?
Have to take family pictures
Always one person left out
Dad drank all the egg nog
Mom wheezing on the sofa
Let's get our loot and get outta Dodge!
