Jack Frost

The candles are electric this year.
The coke advert lets us know Christmas is near
and the people take refuge in their homes and the taverns.

The bees have dies and the trees droop with sadness
as Jack Frost bites in the wind.
There is no Christmas spirit to warm my heart
as people worship the tv set
and give thanks to wallace and gromit.

Marks and Spencer will take care of the kitchen
and DVDs will pass the day
as family grudgingly comes together
and bygones are painfully remembered.

Soon, it is the new year
but by February 
all that can be heard
is the sound of breaking resolutions.

    An asshole like you who hide behind a monitor and shoots off words trying to demean people. Listen little boy with the little mind, go hide your little pee brain in the little hole you crawled out from. You are a worthless piece of crap. You are not even man enough to use your real name and where you are actually from. Come on little boy show yourself and let's talk. Don't hide behind your mama's dress anymore..come out and play little boy.

    you need to think about what you said about Christy Hardy's poem about Michael, learn to love my friend not hate.

    So sad not to feel happy, I pray you will find happiness in something...thank you for taking the time to read my poem "Dear Friend"..it is not hard to love people that show kindness, I wrote that poem for a man that I call friend, he has given me hope when I didn't think there was anything else to cling to...always, Christy

    When I was feeling disgusted with everything a few years ago, a young badly scarred woman talked about the spirit of those holidays and she just made my day with the way she percieved life. We usually get what we look for. Have a great holiday and a successful new year. Vince

    Your mama never taught you any good manners little boy. Why don't you crawl back into the rat hole that spat you out this morning. You are lucky we are confined by a monitor...JACKASS!!
