Jingle bells, roast chestnuts,
Warm your hands on the fire,
Unwrap presents, Eat huge meals,
All of these things will transpire.
Be together, share a hug,
Forget work and hassle and news,
Watch the Queen speak, drink mulled wine,
Argue with family who have different views.
Play silly games, act out fave films,
Eat Christmas pudding and cover it with booze,
Sing karaoke and dance round the room,
Then lie on the sofa and have a long snooze.
Perhaps for five minutes, reflect and consider,
Those who are not lucky enough to enjoy Christmas day,
Whether religious or just conscious of society,
For a little while think about them who can’t play.
Consider the burning of forests and heatwaves,
Dwell on the cutting of millions of trees,
Imagine the pollution of smelting and jet planes,
Make a choice to save the planet, acknowledge climate change, please.
