Be a shame to spoil the treat

I know I shouldn't do it, but I just felt so inclined,

So I took a sneaky peek into the windows of

Your mind. Therein I found some knitting, some

Cardboard and some glue, a paper chain, some

Parchment and a photograph of you.


I came across a menu, a special meal at home,

Duck a l'orange, Atlantic prawns and wine from

Cotes du Rhone. The kitchen needs a facelift,

The car's been acting up, the tyres and oil need

Changing, the engine's running rough.


The weather's getting colder, hello to winter

Blues, you plan to buy a warmer coat, you badly

Need new shoes. I didn't go much further, you

Flagged up thoughts of me, and with Christmas

Only days away, be a shame to spoil the treat.
