Crimbo in Limbo

Crimbo in Limbo

Strung the lights arounds around the tree,
But only one is three is working –
Somehow feels appropriate.
I mostly ordered gifts online –
Is that still fine ?  Or is that shirking ?
Hope that don’t arrive too late…
Went down to the supermarket,
After dark, it seemed so gloomy,
Stocking up on cheese and beer –
When suddenly it struck me square,
There’s no-one there to rendezvous me –
Only me to feed this year.
But then, I know the family’s only
Down the phone or on the screen,
With cards a-plenty to be mounted.
Chin up, chaps, there’s many worse,
Don’t let this curse be cause for spleen –
There’s always blessings to be counted.
