Bah Humbug!

deck the balls
with halls of folly
peace on Earth
to men of good will
hunting fox of no hair
the other day
the world broke out in peace
and found the human species
allergic to it

let’s pretend
we never need say no again
as men of good will
never again
starving abused children
no lopping heads
or shame before the pride fall
1/4th of our world sighing of spring
1/4th of lazy summer
1/4 of autumn harvest
1/4th of winter’s spirit
in some corner of this Earth
is the season of all tides
the yule of peace to come
