Threnody For Christmas by acenabi

Let's examine the shops again this Christmas

(The baubles are up in the living room)

And unoriginal kitsch commends the ordinary:

What shall I buy my love

To hint of what I cannot buy?

Let's contrive to be happy again this season

(The invitations whisper: come)

It's an opportunity to frame a little warmth:

What shall I say to the host

To hint of what I cannot say?

Let's remember the secular truth of you and I

(Connected by a living thread)

That we can kill or love, be greedy or be good:

What shall I wish you reader

But the Peace that cannot be understood?
