Christmas spirit


cringed rhyme on a package
oversized shopping mall Santa ho, ho, hoo
sleigh bells and jingles
wailed to pieces White Christmas 
blasting from cracked speaker membrane
frantic blipping red hot gold cards
twinkling blank eyes, pulling arms
perfect Disney tree in Hong Kong plastic
coloured balls and flashing lights
hurry hurry get some more
you better buy for goodness sake
keep those wheels turning
get in that Christmas spirit

It’s a holiday, not a contest, ha de Gött Christmas.
