My Christmas Cracker.

Dear Friend
Can I please send you
Warm wishes at this time?

To help to take your mind off things
Like household bills and crime.

I’ve seen old Christmas raising
Its strange old head again.

And wondered if I’m crazy to think,
“Oh no, what a pain!!!”

It’s not because it’s boring
Or I’m an age old fart

But how ironic that it’s where
So many troubles start.

Cos’ Christmas equals crisis
In many poor folks eyes.

The cash that’s spent not on the rent
On sausage rolls and pies.

And so I send warm wishes saying,
“Yow man – Keep it real!!”

Cos’ Christmas ain’t bout what you spend
It’s what you think and feel.

And who you share nuff love with and
Not so much why but when.

Bearing in mind that some folk
You may never see again.

And so I send warm wishes adding these words to depart.
Keep your money in your pocket
Spend for Christmas with your heart.

***Merry Christmas ***
