Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)
time for music dancing and frivolity!
There seems to be a madness
Swirling through the air
Some call it Xmas spirit
No one seems to care
Everyone is dashing
All about the place
I don’t know what the rush is for
It’s only for one day
Now have you filled the larder
And all four fridges too
And what about the freezers
The turkey must not turn blue
I can even feel it swirling here
And see that RJ has disappeared
I sensible move I dare would say
A quiet Xmas by the bay?
It’s building up it’s building up
The pressure’s gonna burst me crust
Why is everybody shouting?
Merry xmas Merry xmas – there I’ve outed
Well just for one day come false smiles
‘what a lovely jumper’ snides
I really wanted bottled whiskey
Not some tights like dancer Nitschke
Well managed to avoid minced pies
And apple crumble crawls with flies
Why does cold turkey taste so vile?
And everyone’s got weak smiles
Well now it’s all a slide downhill
Till easter comes oh what a thrill
More good news from Jerusalem
the holy city has become!
