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
