(happy xmas, seasons greetings to all)

 

The time for cheer…

The time for goodwill and happiness to all people…

A time for miracles?…

Perhaps….

 

Xmas is a time for families;

Xmas is a time for friends;

….……………………………………..

….…error!.. alert!…. error……. error…….. does not compute…… error…

 

 

Sorry, my bad, I forgot….

Just said ‘goodbye’ to my only friends…

And as for family…..

My sister DID phone me….

This year…..

 

When I started writing poetry…

And it upset her…

Stuff she’s already got over (?)

I bringing it all up again…

 

 

….Alert!… warning… programming malfunction….

 

Christmas….

The birth of Jesus…

The birth of Salvation…

 

….alert! Alert! Malfunction! Alert!…

 

“CODE RED!!!! WE ARE NOW IN CODE RED!!!!!!”

….(…. feeling a big kick up it’s ass…

The slug climbs up….

Into light, out of the ear lobe….

 

And heads for water…..

 

The biggest mass of moisture…

In the universe….

Jim’s gob!…..

 

With all the survival instincts of a dying virus…

Slug jumps and head dives into Jim’s gob…

…..

 

Good sir, please, what is today?

Why, it’s Christmas Day, sir….

Oh! Bless you, holy devout sire…

… I nearly missed it…

 

…..

I’ve lived and relived my christmasses past..

And my last….

Never noticed em like the 30 before

Drunk from my birthday and slept through them…..

 

….CODE RED!!!! EMERGENCY RESTART!!! CODE RED…

 

Choking and gagging…

Slug dives….

… and explodes…

…in a multitude of poisons…

 

“Here it is, Merry Christmas, everybody’s having fun….

“Should old acquaintance be for got….?

…...

Emergency reboot!…..

 

Tick, whirrr, tick, tick, sludge…….dead!

 

Tick…

Tick…

….whirrrr…tick… whir….
