Missing Something? (acrostic)
By Tom D Blakely
J ust think of the money we spend
E very year coming up to Christmas time.
S pending as if the shops were all about to close down!
U nder Christmas lights and glitter, the tills slide merrily.
S hame about the bank balance, but we mustn’t forget anything.
C an we be missing something? Check that endless list again?
H ave we got enough food and drink for this grand occasion?
R un down to the ATM for more cash, just in case…
I n case, we need some last minute gifts, or any more whatever?
S ign the greeting cards, ‘Merry Xmas’; it really is much quicker.
T here is no time for Christ; ‘X’ will have to do instead.
