Douglas McClarty (Northern Ireland)
Wishing You A Merry?
We wish you a very merry what?
What else have you gone and bought
Are you spending money we haven't got
On things To make us all so happy
What's makes some this time of year
Run like Lemming's to jump off a cliff
Getting sentenced to a financial jail
Or struggle to pay for a load of junk
Happiness bought on the never never
The bonus comes with a load of misery
Struggle to pay it off the next twelve months
Just In time for a repeat of the previous year.
This year give a present to bring you all joy.
Forget the latest gadget, game or another toy
Give a small amount to those in great need
The best present bought, your good deed.
