the excuse

for those
who need
an excuse
to come together
with their families,
to round up all their
friends,
to give gifts, to exchange
pleasantries, to
party for a few days,
to enjoy themselves
despite all else,
we
have
the
“holidays.”

why some need a third party,
a made up reason,
a dictated delusion,
in order to feel that they can 
rightfully take the time
to slow down & smell the roses
with their loved ones,
this writer will never know.
