Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem on the theme of .............

Beyond being too nice, please show mean what the Christmas is all about for you apart from the niceties it brings.
only free verse, please.

Want I am looking for is beyond presents, beyond patronising and beyond sentimentality, One has to do his own thing and not because the Jones did it. You know what I mean.

I like SAD and MORBID things.

EG:- Why do we sell Christmas promoting Santa Clause and not Jesus?

        Do we have to empty our purses to indulge our children of friends?

        Is Lust, Gluttony, Greed and Envy part of Christmas celebrations?

Please give me your best thoughts.
