A Holiday Tale - Poem by Holly Jamestone

The days before Christmas
The malls were insane
The reindeer exhausted
Till one candy cane

Decided that this year
Enough was enough!
He'd clear out the stores
‘Twas time to get tough!

This red and white trooper
Pulled fire alarms
As shoppers were fleeing
No gifts in their arms

The mall was soon empty
The parking lot bare
The mistletoe thankful
That no one was there!

Now gently the reason
For Christmas could shine
In cars' rearview mirrors
Since those not in line

Would then hurry home
To the people who mattered
No parcels in hand
No nerves frayed or tattered

Just big roaring flames
In a fireplace or two
With cocoa and marshmallows
Greeting a few

Hugs, kisses, smiles, love
The true gifts we know
We count on, we treasure
To keep hearts aglow

Santa could now do his thing
Sans the fluff
No chaos - just sleigh bells -
Delivering stuff

Until this time next year
When malls are insane
The reindeer exhausted
The same old refrain

But here in the present
Good tidings, good cheer
Embrace every moment
Enjoy the New Year
