Christmas is Coming
Mark Farley


It's only October,
But all through the stores,
There are shelves full of baubles,
And fake snow on the floors.
It's not really Christmas,
But the shops disagree.
In every bright window,
Is a huge Christmas tree.
So break out the tinsel,
And dig out the cheer.
Sing out those carols,
