The hundredth anniversary. Disney
lures the children to the rink
in their satin pinks and creams. Buy an angel
on a stick. Mickey Mouse inflatables
only a tenner. Parents trudging
from the car park. Bambi lying dead beneath
the Christmas crowds. Dreams packaged in silver stars.
You see, it’s not the traffic that is far too loud
for hollow carols. You can’t blame the band.
It’s just the eerie silence of deserted fairyland.

And if you're having a Kindle Christmas - try my new book of grown-up poems.

And of course with Kindle, as you probaly already know, your book can also be read on Ipad, Iphone, Apple Macs and others too.
So, Dear readers of Roger's blog, if you don't have a Kindle you can still purchase the poets novel.

Happy Christmas Roger!
