Hark the hungry diners sing

I'm having a go at Julia's 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. The challenge is to rewrite a favourite carol with the theme of a Christmas Dinner. I thought I'd give it a go, using one of my favourite carols, Hark the herald angels sing.

Hark the hungry diners sing

Hark the hungry diners sing
“Give us food, we’re all starving 
Increase our girth with turkey wild,
Sprouts and chestnuts over-boiled”
Joyful all ye eaters rise
Once you’re done, there’s more mince pies
Eat your fill and don’t complain
I forgot bread sauce again

Hail the choice not to have goose!
Hail the roasts of crispiness!
Have some more of your stuffing,
(Leave some room for the pudding)
Wild they pile their plates so high
Too much food, but eat they’ll try,
Raise your glass to Christmas cheer
Stuff your face, it’s once a year
