‘Twas the Night Before Christmas….

‘Twas the night before Christmas

and shoppers are getting last minute ‘desperate’ gifts

from those waiting for mail deliveries to anxiety ridden parents causing near marital rifts.

Malls nationwide continue to see slumping sales,

holiday Budweiser ads still feature the Clydesdales  

Forgotten seems to be the true spirit of the season,

so why aren’t there any moral Christmas movies starring Liam Neeson?

Meteorologists predict this year a white Christmas,

but living in the desert, I’ll believe it when I see it or I’ll get pissed.


Decorative pine garlands lay across the mantle of my fireplace,

as my cats scratch and jump wildly at my mistletoe base.


Midnight mass broadcast on every TV channel,

while I sip hot cocoa waiting for Santa in my flannel.

World peace remains to be a far fetched wish,

but for now let me enjoy this holiday leaving cookies for Santa in a dish.
