Let it Snow

Evil lies in darkness
Tongue of a viper
A 9mm Glock
Stop you like a clock
A break in the day
Death and decay
A hazy reality
Leaves you blue 
And green
The color of a loon
Chicken soup
Carrots and peas
Mama can’t save you now
You made the deal
In a back alley
And it was for real
No video game
You can walk away from
And sleep in your bed
You’re living the dream
In techno color
My evil brother
So slide on in your sled
For the man is calling
And you can’t say no
To all that Colombian blow
It’s Christmas somewhere
So let it snow, let it snow.

    Well what can I say, a little marching power to make the holidays more tolerable. ~Kilmer

    Damn! So many great lines in this one. If I were to choose a favorite one it would be "You’re living the dream In techno color My evil brother". Your last lines are great, as always :)

    Thanks Karen, I think I watch to many cop shows (when I watch TV which isn't very often) so it creeps into my mind. thanks for the comments. Kilmer

    Dear Stephen My how you weave a poetic tale. Your use of chicken soup and veggies is just perfect in describing of what you speak (or something like that). "Slide in on your sled" portrays Christmas lost to a lost junkie to the hilt. Amazing writing. love, Kathy

    Kathryn, Thanks for catching the chicken soup line it was meant to convey that people have family they just need to learn how to use it. thanks for all your comments, I am blown away. Kilmer
