A day after Chrismas

A day after the big day.
The big day long expected.
The big day of reconciliation and unity among family/friends.
The big day that sends almost everyone home yearly.
The big day lot of people eat without control while some drink themselves to stupor.
The big day some got involved in evil to celebrate.
A day we will have not till a year.

So quick the big day is gone.
Some wish it could extend a day or more.
Those whom spent extravagantly celebrating the big day have early quarter of next year to contend with.
Those who eat without control, going in and out of the loo awaits them.
Those who drank themselves to stupor will have to suffer hangover.
Not forgetting those who out of their recklessness or God wish kicked the bucket celebrating the big day(RIP).
For those alive and in good health it is boxing day.
