A Christmas Carol 2017 by The Parkgate Poet

Author: Barrie Youde Published: 14th December 2017 09:45
Parkgate Poet Barrie Youde has penned some lines for the festive season.

A Christmas Carol 2017

We plough the fields and scatter, we make a mighty mess.
It ends up in the oceans and it causes much distress.
The albatross eats plastic and so do all the fish:
To do things much more cleanly should be our Christmas wish!
All Good gifts around us are sent from Heaven above
Then thank the Lord, O, thank the Lord, for all his love.

No plastic in His clothing, did Jesus ever wear.
Elasticated nappies were unknown at Mothercare.
No tumble-dryer spouted an electronic noise,
When Herod gave his fatwah against all baby boys.

The people lived quite well, by the shores of Galilee.
Two fishes and five loaves would feed a multitude for free.
And then, when all was eaten, and all was cleared that day,
Still absent was all plastic from any takeaway!

We nurture still our ploughshares to let us scatter more,
Forgetting at our peril the events of days of yore.
The limit of our folly is something no man knows,
As swords we yet still need to protect us from our foes.

We plough the fields and scatter. We can but carry on.
We are an Island Nation with a history long gone.
At Christmas time remember, it's the least that we can do:
The child within the manger gave his life for me and you.
