Black Christmas


I don't wanna see Santa
Or hear those tedious well wishes
And pretend to be interested
I'd rather swim with the fishes!
I don't want those dam reminders
Of our christmas' gone by
I want more time in November
And let hurting memories die
The loneliness is going to burn
The visions are going to pierce
The voice will deafen me over the holiday
The torment will be fierce
I don't want to spend time dwelling
Or wishing that you were here
I know I hate you so dam much
It's never been so clear
I want more time from 2007
Recover and then have fun
But I can't make time stand still
So the demons finally won
I have to ride it out
Find someone to share my fanta
A soulmate? companion? a lover?
But I do not want to see that Santa

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
