Woolly Hats and Mistletoe

Woolly hats and mistletoe

replay in my mind

Look down, look in my eyes,

or am I left behind

In a corner, cardboard box,

dog's bowl full of ice

look down as I pray for you

Emanuel's head full of lice


Woolly hats and Mistletoe

Maria, Elton, Ed

Tinsel warming fingers

missing teeth, fallen head


Give a smile, show – you see

hear and value me,

I didn't want this choice

on freezing pavements in Emanuel's fallen smog


Woolly hats and Mistletoe

Maria, Elton, Ed

Tinsel warming fingers

missing teeth, fallen head


Kicked, left, broken shells

unpoached on cold streets

stealing warmth from passing feet

as children's homes replay in my mind

say good morning, I have nothing,

only teeth in my pocket


Woolly hats and Mistletoe

Maria, Elton, Ed

Tinsel warming fingers

missing teeth, life’s smog, my bed
