Bah Humbug!
(Christmas is coming)

Christmas Sonnet

No carols sung around yon Christmas tree

Nor jingle bells be heard within my home

Tho mulled the wine, twill wash right over me

As I am of a mind to be alone

Where once I was the life and soul; no more

What cheer I felt has long since pass’d me by

Such joy displayed I canst but now abhor

In place of raising glass, tis now mere sigh

Should ‘Marley’s ghost’ at length decide to call

Twud no more change my ways, than feed my stance

By showing me the past; what may befall

Just strengthens my resolve in ‘Now’ perchance

For all among who hoped for said ‘Sea Change’

Yule need to turn the Tide (at such close range)

Richard Gildea
