Twelfth Night

Goodbye goodwill,
Love, friendship, understanding.
It's time to put you back in the cupboard
With the rest of the decorations.

Farewell international peace
And co-operation.
We'll get you out again in time for next twenty fourth
So we can play at Christianity for twelve days
(And nights).
Why can't we practise Christmas
Goodwill all year, 1 wonder?
Oh well, goodbye.

Hello hate, war...

Twelfth Night


Pining with your sisters

in every other garden.

Laying used and violated

next to the shed.


Tinsel traces

like expensive jewellery

draped from your

denuded, coat-hanger, limbs.


Ribs of dry twigs

poke from your green dress.

Ripped and torn

by seasons greetings.


Where once your heart

beat fast and true
