They took the easter out of egg
and stripped the fair of fun
It was a committee decision
with a person in the chair
but there was no offence
and no-one left to care

They took the christ out of Christmas
Now an X marks the spot
where love was ripped away
making room for excess
and little space for play

Where have all the heroes gone?
The ones who spoke their mind.
Are they all wearing capes and masks  ,
out of touch with the human inside,
hiding in their empty casks?
