95th Challenge - The Christmas Craze

a poem by Kenneth Malvyn Clark, UK



Fine Fayre Trinkets And Extravagance


Christmas is a celebration of birth
when gifts were offered to a child
who later became a man and said,
‘love thy fellow man’, today we all
celebrate with merriment and mirth
the birth of this infant, revel in the
Christmas craze of self-indulgence,
festoon our homes with lights and
baubles, lavish our loved ones with
fine fayre trinkets and extravagance,
it beggars belief that children forage
for food, drink contaminated water,
live in bombed out buildings as we
make merry in a land of abundance.


In response to Chad’s request
