C.G.T.

October bids us fond farewell
and as a warning sign
the clocks go forward
signifying
Christmas Greed Time
A silver tinsel-edged, sage and onion stuffed
television extravaganza, a video bonanza
A shirt popping, crowded shopping
energy sapping, parcel wrapping
bargain seizing, credit squeezing
pudding mixing, light fixing
present bringing, wine bingeing
needle dropping, party popping
valium taking, cake baking
till ringing, beer swilling
exasperating
exhilarating
debilitating
hangover when we wake
But then
isn't Christmas
mainly for the childrens' sake?
