... starting early at its worst ...
Christmas Day is coming, starting early at its worst,
as TB Christmas Seals arrived before October first.
If you ignore this, you'll receive reminder mailings.
They'll not let you forget about all of your failings.
As for other charities, to which you gave before,
be assured they will be back dunning you for more.
Christmas is for giving, most will surely say.
I'll give thanks on Christmas, no mail will come that day.
What Christmas has now become is so very clear.
It's not about the Christ child, nor a time of good cheer.
It's evident what it has become, one surely fears...
how do retail sales compare with those of other years?
