Poetry Corner: “Paganistic Birthday Party”

Paganistic Birthday Party

Assembled about the synthetic evergreen altar
are the little dazed children
stunned as if pondering the words of the three wise men
they murmur their pagan chants
materialistic hymns of candy, games and toys

greedy gleaming eyes of the little fry thought to be cute
wishing they could have more than they see

the evening feast
a ritualistic ceremony of orgiastic delight
bloated bellies and upset stomach
oh Christ
They’ve forgotten you and it’s not funny
it seems you are being used for the money

Hedonistic decay
displayed in such an overly degenerate way
a satanistic surrealistic day
electric shavers and racing car sets
chocolate mangers, plastic Christs and neon bulbs
festive colours
euphroristic delight

Santa Claus, the false pretender
laughs quietly
his work well done
