Silent Night

I start my shift at six am

I have asked for overtime,
which means I finish at ten pm;
tonight the Christmas bells will chime.

My kids will be fast asleep,
sleep kills hunger pains,
I just cannot make ends meet,
my problem I’m to blame!

For me this is a silent night,
silence all around,
no one ever sees me,
can the lost be found?

Happy Christmas children,
dream on kids yes dream,
this is a place called England
2016.
