JESUS! What is this all about?

Just cost and family rows.

Useless presents, tasteless tat,

shops so full of crowds.

 

A decorated pine tree

and a fat, old man in red.

A dry and tasteless turkey,

and crawling, drunk to bed.

 

The stable was for donkeys.

That's how it should have stayed.

Three wierdos with their trinkets

were best sent on their way.

 

For some it's saturnalia.

It's solstice too, for sure.

Borrowed from the pagans,

let's give it back right now.

Thanks Guys. Out of season now I know, I was just going through stuff and voicing it up.

Yeah give solstice back to the pagans and those people throwing cash in the nativity knew what they were doing. None of the rubbish on sale was any good, better to throw the money away :-)

Hello Malpoet~ Your write is very real and purely reelects on Christmas that shall be celebrated in much different way.This Stanza tells all...

"For some it's saturnalia.
It's solstice too, for sure.
Borrowed from the pagans,
