‘Twas the night of Halloween

This #Halloween retelling of the “Visit from St. Nicholas” adds wonderfully #spooky and #ghoulish fun to the season of #fright.

So gather the little ones around the fire on this cold #Autumn night, and share in this tale of #ghosts, #ghouls, #zombies, #vampires, #werewolves, and #creatures. #HappyHalloween everyone, I hope you sleep tight.
Colin Davies, the author of the Mathamagical, has blended his love of #spooky stories with the most traditional of #Christmas #poems to create this illustrated spook tale to enhance the atmosphere on a #HalloweenNight.


Together we Stand

Together we Stand

When all about you
Are losing their bread
When those in charge
Seem off of their heads

When everything is Bleak
Granny can’t afford her heater
When nothing seems fair
The cards stacked for the dealer

When you shout at the world
And only those in your bubble hear
When the best to look forward to
Is less tax on beer

When all is but run
As time becomes short
When kindness is needed
Let it not be for naught

When a child is hungry
Ask the government for shame
When on one is listening
Raise your game

When faced with lies
Seek out the truth
When God has forsaken us
See this as proof

When the chance comes a begging
Reach out your hand
Then show others you care
For together we will stand.
