Here’s one of my verses I wrote in response to ‘Black Friday’ last year – I think it still applies..
Every year I swear blind that I’m going to be more ethical in my Christmas shopping, and most years I end up just swearing – not just at the consumer madness of Black Fridays, Cyber Mondays and the like, but at my total inability to make anything that doesn’t turn into a complete disaster. Hence this festive verse…
I’m going to have a really right-on Christmas this year.
The news is full of pictures of the mobs that flood the stores
To get their Christmas presents slightly cheaper than before
They push and shove and jostle and they thump the other shoppers
They might commit a murder that’s unnoticed by the coppers
Cause a bit of bloodshed’s worth it for a cheap computer game
The kids all want that console, and it’s not a time for shame
The people don’t know what to do, should they join in or sneer?
