Christmas
When neon lightsof tasteless mimicry
adornsquare faced concrete structures
When inflation of misplaced responsibility
Stalks the markets at days start
I know Christmas is here
When flowery worded cards
Visit merrily neighborhood stalls
When sewers clickity tack all day
Firecrackers boom premature heart stalls
I know Christmas is here
When drab banks start decorating fake love,
Crystal bells and metallic carols
When creditors bombard you with calls,
Treats, nocturnal visits and cajoles
I know Christmas is here
When parents and siblings demands extra
Shoes to buy, money to send, to give
When pockets seems to readily empty
As soon as I fill them up, they give
I know Christmas is here
When my girl leaves wedding pictures
On the table to throw that hint
When my friend dumps his girl for frivolities
The third time this year without tint
I know Christmas is here.
