[b]Christmas Joy?[/b

Christmas is coming and my wallets looking flat
for again I’m spending money like a stupid dozy pratt.
If I’m left with no pennies, my friends will think I’m swell,
as long as they get presents they will always wish me well!

Christmas comes but once a year, a time meant for goodwill,
so why is it, it leaves most broke and feeling very ill.
A time of stress and worry when you cannot do enough
to please the ones you think that care, but do they care enough?

Christmas makes one realize that friends who were so dear
can suddenly make peace and joy, and goodwill disappear.
With squabbles in all families and jealousy and hate
it’s become the special time of year we all must face our fate!

Christmas is coming and the geese are getting fat
bred so we can kill them just to eat and drink and chat.
Though I guess that some devouring all the food we have prepared
would rather it was us they’d killed when presents are compared.

Christmas Day is holy, what was it Herod said
find that darling little boy and make sure he is dead.
It seems that Christmas sentiment has never changed a bit
but the truth behind real ‘Christmas Joy’ most people won’t admit!

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

Just one little word
one you may not know
Wipes the smile of them
smile just say say NO

It's better to give than receive
reason you don't need to ask-it
This world is full of beggars
"the original greedy basket"

Cant buy friends with pressies
not the ones that I want to know
So if they come looking for money
I just tell them where they can go

Kids are so great at Christmas
some people prefer cold turkey
I cant stomach too much of either
especially when nappies are dirty

Haha You should go and see Les Misérables and learn.

Lots of Love and Merry Christmas Ivor and Joan

In the red and Laid Back

Just looked at my UK current account Apr22 2012 .... first time since Dec 2012 and found it to be a pound sterling in the Red.... Must be the Christmas Cheques I sent plus the Inland Revenue still charging me self employment stuff..... Keeping my options open in case I want to return and become a self made millionaire..... I put my account back into credit so they don't charge me twenty times the amount I owe every month.....

Anyway I took part in the $640 million American Lottery last month..... went down to Point Roberts to buy a ticket..... If I did win I am not telling anyone anyway but....... after thinking for a lifetime how good it would be to win the lottery and how stupid people were saying it wouldn't change them...... I didn't even check my ticket till a week after the lottery was drawn.

Is this an indication of contentment ?
