Distant Relatives

So the conversation grows

About the 2015 election,

The question is,

Are people thinking

Or simply swimming

In propaganda and thoughts

Others want them to think,

The fear is that many plan

To vote against something

Rather than for something,

Are against and anarchy

Distant relatives.

Christmas

Perhaps it’s fitting

That a fat man,

A gay reindeer,

Artificial trees and

Plastic decorations

Be our symbols for

Christmas,

We push and shove

To line up to buy

Cheap trinkets from

The East to give to

Those we supposedly

Love,

Black Fridays that

Stretch for days

And Boxing Day sales

That start days before

Christmas,

Stir and excite us.
