Another attempt at
perverting rewriting a Christmas carol for 2017:
(Bob has a lot to answer for!)
Once in Royal Tunbridge Wells
Stood a lowly shopping mall.
Where a horde of frenzied shoppers
moved like locusts through it all.
Searching for their Christmas loot,
Trampling others underfoot.
Finding bargains at the poundshop,
Cheap old tat that falls to bits.
Plastic toys all made of poison,
Tiny parts to choke their kids.
And the Christmas Trip will be,
An ambulance to A & E.
Spending fortunes on their own folk,
Presents that could sink a ship.
One month’s food to last just two days
Enough booze to float that ship!
Heed the message of our song,
Selfish greed just can’t be wrong!
