You holiday glutton
consuming platters and trays three times over
from dawn till dusk

Fill the glass to the brim with wine
replacing your blood with the fermented juices
now pulsing throughout your body

Everything you’ve worked for

This upset stomach, headache, bad taste in your mouth is just a fraction of what you deserve
ruining everything you’ve worked for
returning to you unruly self
and fueling overindulging urges

For what?

Merry Christmas,
I hope it was worth it.
