following the hullabaloo of the 25th

nope Father Xmas will not be here the next day

he will with his tiresome ho-ho-ho's

have descended enough chimneys for the time being

and by looking at his knackered reindeer

won't be making any more sky trips

his commitments thought of as religious or commercial

have locked him into that one

gorging booze swigging gift unwrapping day

now no longer a myth now belonging in virtual reality

whether he is glad to be there or not is another question

(considering he may soon have to be dodging North Korean missiles!)


So there he will be in his Winter Wonderland

velvet and ermine clobber slung over the rocking chair he sits in

warming his long john'd self by the fire 

made out of obsolete 'Dear Santa can I have' cards

not giving a yuletide stuff about the anti-climatic day

we are all mooching about in like members of the living dead

our pretentious enjoyments and novelties wore off for another year!


So come on then Mr Parcel-Farce delivery man

answer this-

why the sherry-merry-plum-duff hell can't you come here every day

to materialistically or otherwise cheer up this nut job world?

after all, besides killing each other we just love

making mountains of plastic instigated debt

even though you do your best to see that everyone gets a freebie apparently (like I am made to believe despite being in my fifties)

and like the one I passed on to some fucking muppet who loves bath salts!

every day could be Christmas day Leon.All it would take is for our nationalities and religions to be put aside or is that asking for the impossible? And the title is so apt "the hullabaloo" that's how it could be seen as rather than a religious festival.Thank you.Jemima.
