Christmas Finale~#Christmas #poetry #themagicshop

Christmas arrived as a far different reality

Nothing at all from foretold yule fantasies

There was no pristine white snow that fell from the clouds

No twinkling icicles dripping down towards the ground

There were indeed promised presents delivered by dawn

But, not by a character who had been fake all along

It was people who bought all the stuff to be given out

No elves in a workshop or flying reindeers in clouds

Children were lit up with smiles from ear and ear

Oblivious to the debt that their parent’s will be in for years

In a matter of hours the yuletide dream would slowly fade

The aftermath of it’s excess now all had to be thrown away
