Disappearing Numbers

Christmas is coming soon, yippee
Fantastic, fabulous, exciting.
Fun, games, party time, crackers and trees
Partners, laughter, mullberry wine
Chocolates, cherry cake;

Can't wait for mine
To be over and done with, endure the day,
Wish it would just all vanish away.

Erase, delete the word Christmas and number 25.
Public announcement, sorry to say numbers 2 & 5 are no longer here,
just vanished, left without a trace, terrible disgrace, disappeared.
Terrible thing to happen at this time of year.

I never liked those two anyway, they caused me so much stress.
Now the word Christmas is left in distress
His friend December took his own life, felt all alone
With all of them gone now Christmas was postponed.

Nationwide search, army, police, sniffer dogs, the lot
24 and 26 are terribly distraught.
Not to mention their friends 27 and 28
But sadly 25 has had a terrible fate.
Vanished without trace, just disappeared

Terrible thing to happen at this time of year
Now the word Christmas is left in distress
His friend December took his own life, felt all alone
With all of them gone now
Christmas is postponed.

I never really liked Christmas anyway
It caused me such stress
And as for December and 25, I couldn't care less.
