iMistletoe

i hate that combination of mistletoe
and the office party
gross sweaty accountant blokes
in hand knit cardigans
with their beery breath or
smooth talking sales execs
drenched in after shave
and a love of themselves
think mistletoe has magic qualities
that when activated by a wet slobbery
snog i will somehow automatically
develop an uncontrollable urge to
join them in a travelogue or
more likely a quickie in
the cupboard where the cleaning stuff is kept

can i give ‘im a sharp kick on the shin
my knee in his special place
dent the crown jewels
scratch his smarmy face
instead
two heads’ of departments groped
my bum and our creepy boss made me
sit on his lap ho ho ho
i escaped to the loo and made a sample
then topped-up their wine with the essence
of drew

i hate mistletoe
it fills me with dread

Nice to see you back I wish the last line could be changed as well. It cuts the rhythm that you had going nicely off. But enjoyed the light humour.

Oops forgot I'd posted. Thank you both. I think I'll be dropping the last two lines.

Not exactly a hive of creative activity around here, feels like a Jimmy Saville appreciation meeting!

Wow.

We never hear about this stuff that happens there over here.

Okay.
We now return to our pedestrian fare at Writersbeat.com.
