On Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve

We sat around listening

To the old carols that had

Been playing in retail outlets

Since just after Halloween,

A family dog named Tico had

Passed away earlier in the day leaving

Sad faces wondering what things were

Really all about,

Life’s sometimes crazy isn’t it ?

Goddesses Mak, Dee and Kart

Helped to put things in perspective,

Just for the hell of it someone put on

A Son’s Of Anarchy CD and everyone

Looked sideways at one another.
