Christmas 2011 - Poem by Coreena Dejesus
Christmas on an island ahhh the weather,
Our tree and decorations all put together,
Although there is no cold to worry about,
No snow to shovel and clear out.
I kinda miss winter nipping at my nose,
And bundling up in layers of clothes.
Or sitting in front of the fireplace light,
Sipping hot cocoa on Christmas eve night.
I'm just happy our family is all together,
And it's fantastic to be in warm weather.
Sandy beaches covered in sea shells,
Commercialized sound of Christmas bells,
Trees decorated with lights, bulbs, and Christmas toppers,
Traffic is ridiculous with last minute shoppers.
We went downtown and saw the light display,
Santa with a surf board what a cliché,
Santa's now in shorts and a beach shirt,
Kids sitting on his lap looking more like a pervert.
Tell me what you want for Christmas a Barbie or a G.I. Joe,
Santa lets out a big laugh and a ho ho ho.
Why kids sit on a strange fat mans lap,
Always seemed to me as a pedophile's trap.
But here I am letting my kids believe,
That presents under the tree he will leave.
Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed,
That the true meaning of Christmas isn't lost.
Family is what the holidays are about,
Quality time without pulling your wallet out.
Christmas is honoring the birth of our savior,
Not Santa weighing gifts based on kids behavior.
Remember baby Jesus was brought gifts and honor this day,
Don't give into how Christmas is commercially displayed.
