Christmas is over,
The goose is quite relieved.
Seems that for another year,
He has been reprieved!

Christmas is over,
I don’t know about you,
By the end of January
My tax return is due!

Christmas is over,
Brexit’s almost here.
So, instead of French wine,
I’ll be drinking beer!

Christmas is over,
Decorations coming down,
But, because I’m shielding,
I can’t go to town.

Christmas is over,
Do I hear you give a cheer?
Only three six five days
‘Till Christmas next year!

Christmas is over
Winter has begun,
The winter of my discontent,
I’m not the only one!

    Brilliant! I reckon that really taps into the national and local mood, Richard! And thanks for the tax reminder... I guess they’ve got to claw some tax to pay for 2920. Happy New Year to you and the family. I sincerely hope your discontentment is not a whole winter thing... but it depends what the weather girls have got in store for us... 🥴

    That should be 2020, not 2920... blimey, hope it’s not prescient 🥴
