the day I wrote a nice poem

Merry Christmas 

Out of date cans of beans, cheapest cuts of meat,
 presents bought one can ill afford, but pressure 
to give is too strong to resist; beside it is nice to
see a child smile. A packet of cigarettes to uncle 
Tom, a silk handkerchief to his wife-she cries a lot- 
nicely wrapped in coloured paper.  Austerity this 
Christmas, so what! Next year´s will be better, we 
are sure, even if the economic forecast is dismal, 
the Eve will be familiar and cozy as usual.
