"Christmas is cancelled" the Coalition said,
"We just cannot afford it," the proclamation read.
For the first time since Cromwell, festivities must cease,
For this year in the high street there really will be peace.
No holly and No ivy, No presents and No Santa,
No wishing Merry Christmas or all that festive banter.
For all the decorations must stay up in the attic.
And if you just say "Ho Ho Ho" the fine is automatic.
Let's rise against the Government and let us tell them this,
"We defy you with this mistletoe" and offer them a kiss.
Let's all march on Downing Street, the revolt it has begun,
"A very Merry Christmas to each and every one".
