Cynical shopkeepers are out to fleece gullible consumers in the run up to Christmas. It's certainly a view and one which would find favour with those who wait until the sales to do their gift shopping.


Christmas Poetry


Christmas Funny Poems


Shops In The High Street

Shops in the high street
Are full to overflowing
With irate customers
Franticly to-ing and fro-ing

The shopkeeper delights
While prices are rocketing
Happy in the knowledge
Of the profits he’s pocketing

And in his smug contentment
He rubs his hands with glee
“Merry Christmas you mugs
And a prosperous New Year, for me”
