The Non Event

The Non Event

 

Fire hackers and christmas crackers

green and red sprouting baubles of silver and gold

glistening, sparkling an alluring fallacy

A deception as icy as a frozen bucket

tinsle ties its heavenly knots and children sleep in their cots

Whiskers white with red delight

a shining nose to lead us astray

A sham of a reality brought low

as the gathering in of wealth does flow

To eat, sing and drink the cup dry

and no one thinks to ask why

Led across icy plateaus of white bedecked folly

when it occurred in a stable´s gully

Frenetic energy annually unleashed

at a time bereft of joy and little peace

Kisses under a fruitless berry to waste

an exchange of the useless takes place

To eat, sing and drink the cup dry

and no one thinks to ask why

◄ A Rush

Nocturnal Incarceration ►

I think this is my favourite line. Although it is hard to choose in this poem because there are so many which are nicely rounded off with


and no one thinks to ask

Interesting poem Keith like it a lot. Chasing a feeling of security and happiness with little understanding, but a good dollop of nostalgia..as always excellent poem.😃
