Everyday from now till Boxing day I will be posting a verse of my take on the twelve days of Christmas, I hope you enjoy it.
On the first day of Christmas my ex true-love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
To tell you the truth I wasn’t expecting my ex to send me much,
I mean since our bitter divorce we’ve hardly kept in touch.
The partridge happily sitting in its tree looked very sweet
And greeted me with a very happy cheep!
Maybe with this gift they are hoping to make some amends?
Or they think it’s the season to bring past bitterness to an end?
I thought this was a very nice gift to provide
And put it proudly in the garden outside.
If I’d have known then the trouble about to come my way
I might have hidden away for the next twelve days!
