Leftovers held over like hangovers
Everyone had deserted the premises
I was rooted to the spot
Gobsmacked by the view
I poured myself a stiff drink
Cold Turkey, strong and potent.
I opened the window to clear the air
I didn't care that my cheeks turned beet red
Or that my nose a shade of cranberry.
I pulled the gloves onto my hands
And squashed them into the carcass
Ready to gobble up any stray morsel
That had been leftover by the gluttonous relations
That called themselves
