December makes an entrance
With a cacophony of TV ads
All Christmassy stuff
Buy this! Get that!
I avoid shopping malls
Finding exits where I can
I hate shopping anyway
So I’ve got Christmas well in hand
The season is about giving
Remembering our Lord’s gift
What happened to spreading joy?
I will not to be swayed or seduced
By all these bright shiny toys
My wallet is closing
Watch out!
Christmas is coming
