NOW CHRISTMAS DAY IS HERE AGAIN!

Now Christmas Day is here again,
This season of good cheer;
That seems to last from Halloween,
To Burns Night the next year! (25th Jan.)
There's peace throughout the universe,
And goodwill by the score;
Except, of course, on Mother Earth,
Where there is want and war.
Food Banks, thanks to Austerity,
Will open up all day;
For bread and dripping courtesy,
Of Christian, Mrs May.
The homeless will tuck into soup,
And old dry Christmas Pud;
Whilst H.M. Queen on TV says,
How British life’s so good!
And Santa will be on his rounds,
With presents on his sleigh;
Avoiding potholes in the snow,
Whilst sledging on his way.
Once more it's been a fruitful year,
For the Retailing Trade;
Who’ll pray to Mammon once again,
That they had got it made!
