I found myself reflecting on the Prime Minister’s desire to ‘save Christmas’.
A decree went through all the land
To save Christmas.
From what? For what? We knew not.
A poster with a red hatted,
Finger pointing Prime Minister
Told us this was serious.
A Government campaign.
A Tsar appointed,
Who knew about Christmas –
The tree, tinsel, toys and Amazon.
Drinks with friends on Christmas Eve
More drinks and lunch and watch the Queen….
So people spent, rejoiced, made merry.
A pandemic of goodwill across the land.
But we had forgotten…
A decree had gone out once before
And a baby born in an ox’s stall.
