Before the last pumpkin has rotted away and the fireworks fizzled out, the Christmas adverts have started on the TV! Now I love Christmas, but it is just a bit early to start the annual panic. I thought that you might enjoy this poem I wrote a while ago, about the guilt I felt for not being organised.
There’s only 7 weeks until Christmas
And I’ve not even started to shop
No presents, no food, and no booze yet
I don’t even have any pop!
The town is all lit up and sparkling
Santa’s grotto has also arrived
The shops are blaring out music
The old Christmas favourites revived!
All the heart-warming adverts on TV
They are sure to bring a tear to the eye
But my festive spirit is lacking
And I’ve not even made a mince pie!
I really need to get started
There are so many things still to get
I will make more of an effort
But it’s still not December yet!
