Saving Christmas

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.

Christmas saved!

But we had forgotten…

A decree had gone out once before

And a baby born in an ox’s stall.
