art of giving a present without paying for it
first, come's the agreement
to spend exactly the same amount
on each other
although the amount is irrelevant
my boyfriend and I
settle for fifty quid in cash
and to spend as we like
so as we did last Christmas
we will do the same this Christmas.
I hand him an envelope
containing the fifty quid note
at the same time, he hands me
the same amount in an envelope
wishing each other Merry Christmas
the act is completed.
It's the thought that counts maybe
but in this case,
it's the thought behind the planning that does!
