IT'S CHRISTMAS! - POVERTY - WILL COME A KNOCKING! (Now With A Relervant Link)(completed)

Days to Christmas - fewer and fewer!
Mums and dads - wishing to give
Give gifts to siblings - giving reasons
Giving reasons to smile - be happier!
If only for a very - very few days!
Using - credit-cards - borrowing money
Lining up - creditors - up in a line!
Paying for Christmas on the '' Never Never ''!
As if its Armageddon - The Second Of January!
There will be a reckoning!

This time of year - I'm reminded of a Lancashire folk song
From the early 1800's - the time of The Peterloo Massacre!
That's no - carol - just the first line - tells it all!
As it is for many - '' POVERTY POVERTY KNOCKS '' - then and now!
To the '' tune '' - of the shuttle of the cotton loom weaving machine!*
