RDP Friday: Scrooge

The William Shakesspear Pub, London

Thoughts of old London
Cobblestoned streets
Christmas with turkey
And other sweet meats
Scrooge sat in his room
counting his money
Ignoring the carol singers
He found nothing funny
Shivering at night in a very cold bed
The ghost of Christmas past appeared
And then turned his head
to show him his ignorance
of friends, even school
shunned by his father
Scrooge made his own rule
The ghost of the present
showed him good will
and peace to all men
Did this change it for him?
No he stayed in his den
But then came the future
a bony apparition
showing a gravestone
So Scrooge made a decision
He opened his heart
and decided to repent
It all ended happily
and Scrooge was content
Of course it is a story
and had a happy ending
Today gifts are bought
And the money we are spending
There would be no Scrooge
He would not be a looter
He would sit in his office
and do it all by computer
There would be no neglect
No reason or rhyme
he would enjoy his Christmas
He would probably have more time

  1. Yes, the modern day Scrooge would do it all by computer and might have a nice Christmas if he chose although there are still misers about. I doubt that his employees would get the benefit any more than Bob Cratchit did though.
