X-MAS IS COMING
X-MAS IS COMING
A once a year nightmare
A time of cheer
A debt riddled fantasy
Of which we cant stay clear
The gift list keeps increasing
The ability to pay for everything decreasing
The rush to overspend exhausting
Does Xmas need postponing?
Arms and legs are aching
Wallets are shrieking
Shoppers are grumbling
Store shelves are emptying
Who will do all this wrapping ?
Anxiety levels keep rising
You wonder if you bought everything
The turkey still needs ordering
The family list still needs negotiating
The is no time for sleeping
With all this worrying
Will they appreciate all your planning?
You wish you were on a beach sunbathing
Sipping rum and chilling
All you want is time to rest
But there is so much you haven't done yet
Will Santa be upset
If you haven't done your best ?
You hope you receive an expensive gift
You might just get that special something
You have been hinting daily
So you hope they have been listening
Xmas is after all about receiving after giving
What will you do if Santa is not forthcoming?
The time for carol singing is approaching
Your voice as usual needs tuning
This year you hope to do more than mumbling
As usual the vicar will come visiting
Demanding you come listen
To him preaching that Xmas is
Not about gift giving
You wonder on which planet
He has been living
How much more of this will you be taking?
The church bells will start ringing
For it is the season for celebrating
Hopefully snow will start falling
On Xmas day morning
A day you are dreading
Will someone help[ reduce your worrying?
It is not all bad
It is after all a one day affair
Just hope all goes well
And enjoy your time
With those you hold dear
Thank god and Santa for everything
Despite all the over spending
