There’s a green area opposite Tesco’s
Which is a reasonable size.
It is used, by me, to play football
Well me and the rest of the guys.
That is, that it would be,
But unfortunately today
We get there and find somebody
Has Built Tesco’s Christmas display
Right in the middle of this area.
Imagine our dismay
When we got there after school
And discovered we couldn’t play.
Don’t get me wrong, normally,
I’m full of the spirit of the season,
But at this moment I had none
And, I believe, with good reason.
What good is peace on earth
And Goodwill to all men,
If we cannot play football
Until January arrives again?
Someone then suggested that we
Play around all the things
But we said no, explaining,
The inconvenience that it brings.
Besides can you imagine
How embarrassing it would be
To be tackled by a fake Santa,
Or fouled by a Christmas Tree?
It looks like we’ll have to postpone
Our game, temporarily.
Looking, currently, at the display,
A solution we failed to see.
Then suddenly someone suggested,
‘Why is it not the case,
That we don’t give up our game,
We simply find another place?’
Of Course that was the solution,
Why didn’t we think of it before?
And lo and behold after a game
Our Christmas Spirit’s seemed to restore.
