Bah Humbug! It's that time of year again, when businesses make excuses for 2 months instead of 2 days because they're gearing up or slowing down because of Xmas. When up and down the streets can be heard—I don’t want to, but I must!! I hate travelling/hot dinner/the in-laws/the outlaws/the presents—but I must!
So I'm having a Bah Humbug (aka 'suit yourself') Xmas. Telling people in the street has had the unexpected result of many total strangers wanting to come to my place. Bah Humbug indeed!! I shall contact Santa and say that many of us want the Bah Humbug option.
The house was silent and no one stirred
Everyone was in bed, yes, even every bird.
The tree’s packed away, wrapped in last year’s rug
Because this year, Xmas is going to be Bah Humbug!
