Quiet thankfulness wears queer wanting in this society of ours,
where all the shopping must be done within certain hours,
and quickly passing life moans patiently
as shoppers look at oases of awesome love
in all anointed assumed affection
lonely tastes of always lasting desire
of allowances for more.
Yes. Now, again, a seasons thanking done,
and people gone pettily as walking lovers of knowing
value in purchased items of shallow worth.
And each walking with easy quick peripherally risky waiting.
For easy opportunities losing value as all expense is left
talked and walked with learned direction and certainty
while weary teachers of real money reason what wonder
will leave wicked marks. Upon the reach of taught waste
and awful numbing of spirit ” where shopping dulls the senses
seamlessly with eating and football.
Where lapdogs of luxury express opinions of taste
Sorrowful within the hearing of poverty stricken workers
for lastinglessons of loyal goodness.
This is the season for all to be given
partially in recognition without lasting thanks
of the good we are and would willingly become
if eerie santa purposes did not cloud our vision. Become
if eerie santa understood his loyal captors work for another god.
Wait for the real reason for holiday cheer
and realize what assumptions easily sow our thanksgiving cheer
and inspire within the lessons taught risk free
before money became our god.
