Oh Christmas Tree...A Saturday Centus Offering


"Oh Christmas tree,"
"it doesn’t have to be this way!"
Sausage festering upon thy branch
when we’d rather have filet!

Could be worse…
I’m just a’guessing:
that pork could be slathered
w/rancid mustard dressing

Thanks but no thanks,
giving this a pass.
Feasting on fudge instead…
Chocolate won’t cause gas!

This week's Centus includes a photo prompt, word prompt ("Oh Christmas tree"), AND a 50 word limit! Whew! Ms. Jenny certainly is a task master! And then, just for kicks, I decided to make it harder by using last week's prompt as well ("It doesn't have to be this way") due to my absence. I hope you enjoyed my little Christmas ditty that I was certainly fun to pen. Have a great weekend!

Nice job...I love meat, but this looked a bit much, even for me! I think the AZ heat is getting to Mrs. Jenny.

Well, my first thought was "all that cholesterol!!" I'd much rather have dark chocolate, Polly!

Jenny said...

Polly, you are so darned funny. Thanks for a great laugh for 2012. I prefer the fudge, too!

Although that rancid ranch does sound tempting - ha!
