Friday Poetry Prompt

So I had this great video idea for today’s poetry prompt and discovered the lip sync was off 😛  along with other problems of not being able to use the music I want, etc, etc.

 

This poetry prompt will be the prompt for the next 2 weeks. It’s a hectic time this holiday season. MY holiday is Christmas and next Friday is Christmas Day, so there will be no new prompt.

Poetry prompt:  Write a holiday poem, whatever your holiday is.  Was it Hanukkah?  Is it Christmas?  Kwanzaa?  Something else?  Bah humbug! It can be a good or a not so good poem: I got JUST what I wanted for Christmas  🙂  versus my mother in law is coming to stay with us for a week 😦

 

The Christmas Police by Frank Esposito & Valeri Beers

The Christmas tree speeds like a fast car down the highway.
Its lights of red and blue flame through the night.
The Christmas police are pulling me over.
“Did you know you don’t have enough Christmas spirit, ma’am?”
I got a ticket for
not blaring Christmas music
not having my car stuffed with brightly wrapped presents
not having antlers & red nose on my car
half assed decorating
not enough baking
not enough cards

green bean casserole
rattling & tinkling
in the
way back
fashionably late
for
all the
Christmas things.

little white lies
no thank you
&
thank you

This was from last year so I will write a Christmas poem for this year 🙂
