Poetry: “Season of thanks”

And so we enter December and I go a little philosophical.


Season of thanks


Reaching the end of the year

Where holidays abound

When we show thanks for what we got

And joy to every man.


Is it strange then that this joy

This boundless gratitude

Should be shown with objects that

We purchased in some store


DVDs and TV sets, laptops and iPads

Toys and shoes and kitchen aids

Advertised in glossy ads


Suddenly it does appear

That love, it has a price

Whatever that new tech thing

Will cost you in the store


Consuming like we do

It will destroy our earth

And if you want to show affection

Why that can be done for free
