A Better Christmas

so, a time for warm memories?

fond loved ones from the past?

Christmas 2019 one to forget

I thought it might prove my last


parrot strangled in trimmings

wife, shopping after a row, got

took short, skidded off the path

house got burgled Christmas Eve

at which your festive spirit palls
