Treasure Island

Baahh Humbug! ! !


Christmas comes but once a year,
And that's too much for me I fear.
The shops are filled with crap once more,
Selling their wares like a street wise whore.

Parents tell tales of Rudolph and Santa Clause,
Eyes may light up but it's all lies of course.
Send christmas cards put up the tree and the lights,
Even though there's a recession and we're in the shite.

Aftershave I don't want and socks I don't need,
I put on a fake smile and say thankyou indeed.
We've forgotten what christmas is supposed to be,
A precious time to be spent with your family.

So this christmas for me will be just as the last,
I'm not going to do it, my vote has been cast.
You can sweep your christmas under the rug,
And I shall say to you all.. BAAHH HUMBUG! ! !

Spread the love... The peace will follow...

    I loved this, haha..I have given up on the Christmas lies long ago....I feel that I will celebrate the true meaning of the Season every day, and not make a big deal out of a month of absurdity....I give when I want to give, not when merchants want me to.....may not seem right. but..it works for my soul.. I am at total peace with my choice....and...hahaha...Hugs n blessings (Report) Reply

    This poem was meant as kind of a joke, whilst having a pop at the absurdity of the modern christmas... It has become something I want no part of... So I shall try to poke fun at it... That's just my way... Hehe! ... Merry Humbug... (Report) Reply

    you have a very good point indeed. (: i like christmas, i am catholic, but i see where you are coming from. I believe in the birth of christ, and i don't like the way everyone celebrates christmas without giving a thought as to WHY there even is a christmas. I also like bah, Humbug! Ebenezer Scrooge is one of my favourite book characters of all time. (: (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
