Bratty Beauty in the Christmas Ashes: A Poem
Aromas of bayberry and pine
In the background the never-ending whine
The glistening angel on the tree-top tall
Ashamed, her head hangs hearing it all
Why can’t I have
Do I have to serve
The new Hotwheels are cool
Ps4 Madden is only for the fools
Playstation is better, louder, and internet ready
Me, me, me, me, me … a holy melody
Aren’t we free from chores?
It’s Christmas after all?
Funny…last I checked Jesus worked from sun up til sun down after the Fall
Can my friend come over?
Dinner is boring.
Hmmm, wonder if Judas thought he was really scoring in Jesus’s story
Can I use my gift card today?
Commercial said the store was open all day
Does God regret his all-encompassing power, knowledge and say?
As He looks at us below
Dreaming of the day when we could show
His love to others,
To all our sisters and brothers
Instead of loving ourselves, being right
Gossiping and causing a fight
Jesus is The Season
He is the only Reason
To have no fear
To celebrate Life and hearts of cheer
Thank you dear Jesus for the monumental save
Of the entire human race
As our glasses toast
And hostesses boast
While the twinkly lights shine
And we inevitably run out of time
May we honor You with a prayer
That without You, we wouldn’t be here
That it is You, we shall seek
Opening our hearts, allowing Your miracle-tweak
