Good King Wenceslas-just the man we need for a hungry Christmas

It’s going to be a cold hungry Christmas for a lot of people. Can you help, like Good King Wenceslas did? For younger readers, here is our version of the famous carol:

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas last looked out, one night while watching telly

When a poor man came in sight, sad and slightly smelly

It was proper cold that night, he could tell by glancing

I can’t sit here, it just ain’t right, enjoy Strictly Come Dancing

“Bring me flesh and bring me wine, there’s some upstairs, I knew it

ASDA Chardonnay is fine, that should probably do it

Pot noodles and odds and ends are nowhere near enough

Bring Auntie Bessie’s, Uncle Ben’s-proper pukka stuff!”

They loaded up the car and went round all the local food banks

It made old Wenceslas feel well good to see the children give thanks

“Christ!” he mused, “it’s well alright, doing things for others

Even if some look like Chavs, they’re someone’s wives and mothers!”
