Santa’s ‘No Knock’ Lament: Twas the Night Before Christmas

Dean Ryan
21st Century Wire
(another cautionary Christmas story)

Twas the night before Christmas…
And all Americans were asleep
Like generations before them, so many impersonate sheep
Kneeling before their masters with teleprompters & ties
Who sing, who dance, and tell sweet little lies
While the eggnog hardens & the chestnuts roast
The festive smell of evil spreads from coast to coast
In the shape of consumerism with a narcissistic approach
For one could look much dapper with a fur or leather coat

As little Timmy & Juli sleep Santa begins to creep
Into the kitchen he finds his thrills
rummaging through pharmaceutical pills
