A Game of Donkey

It's Christmastime in Matty Googan's pub.
The men are all brothers
The women in love
The kids have been sitting on Santy
all are merry having fun

The boy finds a ring in his lucky bag
and the grown-ups start playing a game

They're  making a  ring
around a man and his wife

She's pretending to be a stubborn donkey
down on all fours and braying

He's the ass's owner in a hurry
kicking it in the belly
and dragging it along by the mane
