September seems to have gone missing...

I've been busily working on my new manuscript!

Meanwhile, it's October, so it's time for:

Chestnuts roasting at the greasy spoon,
JD nips that someone pours,
Yuletide carols being sung out of tune,
And folks dressed up like Santa Clause.

It’s all because
A breakup or a family fight
Adds to Christmas stomach ache.
Tiny tots with their greedy eyes bright
Call out for new toys that soon break.

They know that Santa’s on his way,
He’s loaded but he’s still flying in his sleigh,
And every mother’s child is gonna cry,
Demanding toys she can’t afford to buy.

But now I’m offering some words of cheer
To kids from one to 98
Although you feel cold and see flying reindeer
It’s only something you ate.
