First Sunday of advent has come and has gone,
Onwards and upwards, there’s things to be done.
Only remember to wait and to pray,
Discounts and bargains will be ours today .
Can we just pause and give some small thought?
Under the tinsel tree presents we’ve bought!
People around us have less than they ought.
But see here, this is a great gizmo I caught!
Others have tinned beans, but we will have turkey.
Anyway, now I have spent all my money.
Remember to wait and to watch and to try,
Discern what’s the thing that you really must buy.
