Mer-wry Christmas Shopping Advice

Black Friday, Green Sunday, Cyber Monday.
If you're looking for a deal you'll be happy,
but you'd better watch out it might get scrappy!

Think before getting too materialistic.
In the panic and rush to find a bargain,
people have forgotten "Goodwill to all men".

If you don't want to feed the consumer machine.
Shop local, shop crafty, shop artisan, shop wise,
and don't believe the conglomerate lies.

Open your eyes to the harsh reality of Christmas.
When some have to choose to heat or to eat
whilst others spend the day alone on the street.

Just as the Angel Gabriel said
"Fear not, if all else fails,
you can always pop to the January sales."

Biscuit: Ryvita Original with Philadelphia Cream Cheese ('Wry' advice - geddit?)
Taste: 8 out of 10
Cost: 99p from Tesco in Brockenhurst


  1. But is a Ryvita a biscuit or are you now The Scandinavian Rye-Bread Poets?

    1. Oh don't you start, crisp bread, biscuit, what's the difference, anyway it was all we had in the biscuit cupboard!


Please tell us what you think about our poems and the biscuits
