CHRISTMAS PRESENT

 

 

I remember the time we went shopping

To a big town called Milton Keynes,

It was all decorations and coloured lights

And moving snowy scenes.

 

The noise was really horrendous

And people were rushing around

Carrying green bags of presents

All shouting above the loud sound.

 

We tried to sit down for a coffee

And rest our poor tired feet,

But all we could do was stand in a queue

Then try to find a spare seat.

 

We'd soon had enough of the mayhem

So we walked miles back to the car,

We said we'd never do this again

We'll try somewhere else next year.

 

It use to be nice Christmas shopping

Now it's noisy and usually cold,

You never will hear the angels sing

And find PEACE like the shepherds of old.

 

So let us rejoice this Christmas

And try to bring peace as we're able,

Remembering in all our festivities

The Christ-child born in the stable.
