Without Enthusiasm

I am afraid to say
it is without enthusiasm
that I approach Xmas day.

It has become a shoppers dream,
bargins and deals galore,
a great marketing scheme.

Drive out and about at night,
Electricity wasted for competion with neighbours,
it is an extravagant sight.

“Oh bah humbug” you say,
“Think of the joy for children and families!”
but it’s gimme gimme gimme all day!

Lots of grog and candy and food,
feasting and playing and more,
but the waste at the end is so rude.

Without Enthusiasm

NB: I still enjoy the chance to dress up my puppy though!
