And To All A Jolly Merry Christmas - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sleigh bells ring,
Are you listening?

Christmas approaches.
And toys advertised and marketed,
To purchase and wrap...
To be found and discovered,
Under carefully decorated Christmas Trees...
Are as follows...

What about a nice pair of handcuffs,
For little Sarah and Johnnie?
To look as real as real can get.

Digitally programmed and automatic,
High powered guns?
That should be fun!
To wound with 'plastic' pellets,
With an inflicting done to our favorite pets.

And don't forget,
The latest video games...
Depicting the maiming and beheading,
Of suspected terrorists.
With names applied to ensure they fit.

OR perhaps a customed designed TSA outfit?
Equipped with instructions on how to legally fondle...
Prior to boarding domestic flights!
Children can grope the nieghborhood kids.
Getting approval and making this right!

And to all,
A Jolly Merry Christmas.
With safe and peacefully slept nights.

Sleigh bells ring,
Are you listening?
