    Does anyone else hate Christmas?
    The propaganda, the greed, the lies?
    A tree in your house that dies?
    Only being able to eat certain foods;
    and those until you’re sick?
    Pretending the Victorian era was cute;
    that intruders are somehow slick.
    It’s a quarter of all the money that’s spent,
    on stuff that nobody needs.
    It’s surveillance from a creepy old guy
    of every one of your deeds.
    Give up your charms,
    tricking the young,
    the landfill slice you made.
    What’s the harm
    to just have fun,
    without the bill you paid.

    Thanks for the much needed guffaw, Chris!
