The Original Story Revisited - Poem by James Tipp

Suddenly I have time to reflect, listen, observe
I have stepped off the speeding train of 'Must do'
That was heading for the station of 'Never get there'
The lights seem brighter, the people seem apprehensive.
But it's Christmas and the children must have everything.
People spending money on things they don't need but must have
People trying to square the circle of the Christmas message.
If they can remember what it is and who's involved.
Within the stable rampant commercialism is evidenced
He gets Incense, Gold, and another strange sounding smelly
We need Gucci and Armani, and still throw in the gold
There is a precedent you see within the stable
To go over the top with the giving, there was a lamb
We have turkey but no doubt the cost was considerable
So before the religious get all pious and snotty about giving
Just examine the story again and you will see it's all there
Set in stone and we are merley following on the example.
