Whimsical Sf Christmas - Poem by Nanette J. Lim

Chestnuts roasting in an electric oven
Popcorn popping in the microwave
Packages of instant apple cider brews
Computer chips hung as ornaments
Kix cereal strung as garland beads around the tree
Futuristic metallic adorn the artificial tree
Hints of pine spray reminisce in the room
Xmas Rap music blaring from boom boxes
Choirs caroling up and down SF hills from motorized cable cars
Skyscrapers bedecked with golden lights
Machines creating artificial snow
Children ice skating in portable rinks at Union Square
Salvation Army volunteers in blue jeans soliciting to fill their pots
SPCA critters clawing up to adopters by the window
Homeless beings warming up by toxic steel drums of fire
Santa's electric van powered by recycled reindeer droppings
Red cream Oreos and tofu shakes await Santa by the dumb waiter
A toast and cheers to you with a glass of non-alcoholic beverage
Hope you have a real 'OLD FASHION' Xmas!!!
