Celebrate Deteriorate

Jingoism, bullsh+t, vented frustration and trash.
Much vaulted celebration, the Big Christmas Bash.
The standard line up, grub and free booze for all.
Greedy humanity feeding, staggering, about to fall.

Duck drunken abuse, insults and worse, arse licking.

That one dance a year whirlwind has just hit the floor.
Alright I've had a bit of fun, giggled quite a bit.
The booze was welcome and the food not to sh+t.
