Someone's poisoned the reindeer

somewhere someone
is tellin’ their kids
that Santa
ain’t gonna’ fill
their stockin’s
full of goodies this year

mum & dad
have been laid off
due to unseen economic
circumstances
& the banks
are not really into
lendin’ poor people
a helpin’ hand coz
capitalism can’t cope
with compassion

somewhere someone
is tellin’ their kids
that life ain’t no bed
of roses
& the glass
ain’t half empty
or half full
it’s just fuckin’
downright dirty
