X-mas is coming and I am filled with dread
The rush to overspend is exhausting
The gift list keeps increasing 
The ability to pay for everything is decreasing 
You wonder if X-mas needs postponing

Arms and legs are aching
From all the carrying
Why do things need so much packaging?
There is constant anxiety 
As to whether you bought everything

The turkey still needs ordering
The family list still needs negotiating
No time for sleeping 
With all this worrying
You wish you were on a beach sunbathing

Santa sees no need for hurrying
You keep hinting about all
The stuff you keep wanting
Isn't Xmas all about receiving?
Fingers crossed 
You might just get that
Special something 

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 visit
Demanding you come and listen
To him preaching that X-mas is 
Not about gift giving
You wonder on which planet
He has been living 

The church bells will start ringing
For tis the season for celebrating
Hopefully snow will start falling
On Xmas day morning 
A day you are dreading
For no doubt the family will start fighting 

Thank god and Santa for everything
Despite all the over spending
