Christmas Once More!

Christmas once more nears on the calendar

as our big society crumbles.

Under the ever rising amount of unpaid debt

the wealthy will celebrate with relish.

They have no fear of the lack of food and light

on that festive holy night!


Many once rich countries now have food banks

as the people have no money.

Taxes keep increasing with little given in return

as we aid others but not our own!

Ruled by governments where politicians aren’t poor

they’ve no idea of the score!


More desperate and isolated families do now exist

as credit and jobs are scarse!

Both have become very hard for most to acquire

prices beyond most people’s budget.

There’s no shortage of those with money to burn

we enter lotteries hoping its our turn!


Christmas once more is knocking on the door

children have grown to expect.

Presents from Santa under the decorated tree

that their parents can’t afford!

Millions go without not for them Christmas joy

celebrating the birth of that special boy!


A Very Happy Christmas!
