Day 188: Hark!
Now the other side of Christmas, the one we're all so familiar with - gluttony and greed and slovenly ways!
(This is maybe a little how I feel today...!)
But not to forget the ultimate buzzwords of the season: Peace and Goodwill, but here also - Share. There. Not just share your things, food, material items I'm sure, but your time, blessings, good cheer, feelings and of course, love.
Hark - John Agard
Drink up the mull till you're full
Don't mince on the pies
It's the season to gourmandize
Stock up on the stockings
Crack up with the crackers
The chimney looks the same
But Santa's gotten fatter
Time to be reckless
With the turkey in your trolley
Feel free to be legless
In front of the telly
Now with the innards fully filled
Spare a thought for tender words –
Peace. Share. Goodwill.
