In a world of greeting card sentiments
fake pine and cinnamon candle scents
expensive gifts with a big red bow
mint flavored candy and plastic snow
psychadelic lights hanging free
on a densely decorated synthetic tree.
What in the hell does all of this mean?
Cheap advertisements endorsing plastic toys
encombering the minds of young girls and boys.
The twenty year old Santa with the nylon white beard
who sits in the crowded malls so many had feared.
Happy Winter Solstice :)
