At the high street cut price superstore
looking at Christmas stuff and it’s a bore,
not halfway through October and we’re
all being overrun with Santa and his
bags of fun
they’re taking bloody liberties
with Christmas and its festivities,
if it was up to some
they’d have it as soon as
Easter had gone
but it’s all about the cash,
money in the till
nothing to do with Jesus
stuck on a cross
at the top of that hill.
