the Truth About Christmas

Over Britain’s fields green
among struggling throng times are lean
corporate conglomerates for cold cash scream
from mouths in adverts in windows that gleam
glitter or glow
picture or light show
all mean nothing to the falling snow

Jolly season,
festive season?
Festival a term  of reason
dead lords declared Solstice party treason
sanctioning instead what is now the Christmas season

Beneath  wrapping-paper, bright gifts, chocolates ever sweet
lies the real substance, Christmas’s bones and meat
something which no name nor religion can deplete.

a time of fellowship, fun, family, food and friends
a time when no one loans, borrows or lends
so indulge the Christmas fads, the latest little trends
remember this time’s for giving, to loved ones and to friends.
