Your Merry Christmas with Thornton’s Budgens

Your Budgens always carries hosts
Of offerings for you —
So step inside this Christmastide
And see what we can do

With potables and comestibles
(That’s drink and food) besides
Our turkeys and our Christmas trees :
Here sumptuousness resides

And scrumptiousness as well because
Of our fine delicacies :
Chocs, pie, and cake — for goodness’ sake
Scan all that’s here to please !
