Fairytale artwork by Jim Anderson

it’s Christmas Eve, babe, and we’ve been to Asda
we have to shop there now instead of Waitrose
it isn’t what we chose – we’ve had to compromise
financial meltdown means we must economise…
we used to drink the finest wines
and dance the night away
now it looks like we’ll be broke
by Christmas Day
