The Carol of the Smells

Now that I have dealt with the unexpected bit of emotional dross dredged up by this weeks prompt, it is time to roll up the sleeves and do some creating. I guess more antacid for the soul was called for. To remind, the prompt is to adjust a favorite carol to the theme of Christmas dinner, while keeping rhythm and pace intact. Without having personal experience to draw from I am definitely relying totally on imagination here, but that is not actually a new thing for me. This is probably not the best thing I ever came up with, but it had to be done! 🙂

Based on The Carol of The Bells:

Hark all the smells, 
sweet yummy smells, 
all seem to say, 
food’s on the way

The guests are all here, 
bring me a beer, 
you’re too young to hold, 
please make sure it’s cold.

Come along to The House of Wong 
where all others get along 
eating Duck Peking
all chopsticking.

One seems to hear 
words of good cheer 
from everywhere 
filling the air.

Oh how they pound, 
good food all around, 
the food will not go stale, 
I feel like a whale.

Gaily eating 
and also laughing 
sounds of good cheer, 
Dinner is here.

The food is very yummy, Yes Yes! 
The guests are very chummy, Yes Yes!

Food without end, 
fun without end, 
bring joyful tone 
to every home.

Even if the House of Wong!
