Christmas desire

  • Christmas tree12345

    December brings us,
    Christmas time
    This time of year,
    Is so divine
    We come together,
    For family games
    We stuff ourselves,
    With candy canes
    Under the tree,
    It’s presents galore
    The city turns white,
    Let the snow pour
    The streets and houses,
    Covered in lights
    Everywhere you look,
    There’s sweet delights
    We always feel stuffed,
    Too much food
    The Christmas spirits,
    Put us in a great mood
    Our stockings hung,
    Over the glowing fire
    Did Santa bring you,
    Your desire.

Balancing Act

Slash their wages, or else sack them

Dump them on the rubbish heap

Turn them out their family houses.

We have promises to keep.

Let the rich retain their riches

Bankers, football stars, that lot.

Let’s not super-tax the mighty

We won’t stir what’s in their pot.

Can’t you see we’re trying to budget

What the country has to spend?

Take from those who can’t afford it

Money to improve our audit.

This is how things will amend.

Disillusionment of Ten O’Clock – Your Favourite Poem


The houses are haunted
By white night-gowns.
None are green,
Or purple with green rings,
Or green with yellow rings,
Or yellow with blue rings.
None of them are strange,
With socks of lace
And beaded ceintures.
People are not going
To dream of baboons and periwinkles.
Only, here and there, an old sailor,
Drunk and asleep in his boots,
Catches tigers
In red weather.

Wallace Stevens (1879 – 1955)
