Christmas Thoughts

Fir tree cracker
Bing Crosby blues
Present and past
Singin out good news

Snow flake memories
Bearded dreams
Snow man building
Laughs and screams

Sales to business
Stripping us clean
Whiskey drinking fears
Has Old Nic been?

Card swap tradition
Red cloth lies
Reindeer love
Children's surprise

Foul feather murder
T.V. Superman
Misplaced sentiment
Since Christmas began

Most will think that it's all valid
In their numb protected mind
Illusions vote already carried
Tradition’s chain entwined

But if you dare to question now
That holiness divine
You just might want to check upon
That Demon, Constantine
