It’s vintage, it’s tacky, it’s all the rage.
Bright garish colours screaming from your chest,
a trend for masses of folk to engage,
in all sincerity or merely jest.
When your grandma was knitting, who’d have guessed?
A fashion disaster, now so adored
that everyone’s absolutely obsessed,
and buying as many as they can afford!
Love for the festive jumper trend has soared,
and yet I still don’t own a single one.
Maybe this Christmas I’ll get my reward,
then I’ll be able to join in the fun.
It’s vintage, it’s tacky, it’s just begun.
It’s a trend that none of us can outrun.
The Twelve Sonnets of Christmas
