My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

x-mas eve 12/24/14

x-mas eve

hustling

bustling

maddening

crowd

yammering

stammering

unyieldingly

loud

mumbling

bumbling

fumbling

fools

grabbing and stabbing

at turkeys and tools

at bikes for tykes

just something she likes

a card that sings

for watches and rings

and sparkly things

for any and all

they have on their list

plus baubles and kitsch

for the ones who got missed

tempers and tantrums

as religion is lost

buying on credit

never counting the cost

dibbling

dabbling

babbling

scrabbling

to get through the line

on out of the store

a mad rush home

to crash through the door

throw down the bags

and flop in your seat

for x-mas eve dinner

is ready to eat…

but a glance out the window

on a clear winter’s night

a star in the east

shines forth its light

on a stable and a manger

a newborn babe lies

waiting to be remembered
