		Must click.
			Oh, Granma!

Comedy/Social Satire
Scrooge, by Ronald Neame

One goes down the stairs,

			It pays to know what to wear,
				Unless she is not aware.
				Not everyone has the flair,
				Not everyone can stand the flare.
Oh!                             I must be dreaming on the chair.
