Nothingmas Day

Hi
My parents played me a record by the Barrow Poets when I was little, which featured a short poem called Nothingmas Day, a kind of anti-Xmas poem. It was very clever - quotes like "Oh look what I haven't got, it's just what I didn't want!", and the "children threw no-balls". I believe that it may have been by Adrian Mitchell originally?
Does anybody out there have the text to this poem? Since I told them about it, my kids have been pestering me to try and find it!
best regards
Jon

Dino, apparently it's still under copyright. Go to your local library and get a copy of any book by Adrian Mitchell which contains the poem. His books are very popular and should be available at most public libraries of any size.
