A TWO-FACED REALITY

by John Yeo

“I don’t feel like it, I don’t want to go,
Can’t we make an excuse?
You don’t really like them at all.
They are total snobs, just showing off
By throwing money around.
Don’t be a silly fool!

~

They’re a family that never mixes,
Why should we pretend?
Just because it’s Christmas.
Let them enjoy their luxurious party
With food and presents in plenty,
Gifts and fine wine by the glass.

~

Perhaps we should show our faces,
Even though it will be a chore.
We deserve to share the festival
Perhaps we will get some presents
To take back home with us.
It really is Christmas after all.

~

I suppose we will have to take
A bottle of red and white wine.
Climb in the taxi, mind your dress,
Hello! How are you all? Cheers!
Happy Christmas! Lovely to see you!
It has been such a very long time!”
