I'm not going to write you a Christmas Poem*

(Pre-script: To get the most of this post, read it as the song: "Blackbird" plays. Go down to the playlist, click it on, then come back and resume reading. I'll wait...) (...still waiting...)

If you have come to my blog looking for my most recent Christmas poem, you will not find it here; not today, at least. If you want to read a Christmas poem, I recommend "Twas the Night Before Christmas," or any number of Christmas carols read without the music. They're all pretty good, and I have nothing new to add to them...not today, at least.
Besides, someone else already wrote the poem about the kid who saved all his money and bought his mom red shoes because it was all she ever wanted. I have no idea how to top that... Not today, at least...


*To be read to the tune of the Sara Berealis song in which she sings "I'm not going to write you a love song."

No one's hangin' stockin's up,
No one's bakin' pie,
No one's lookin' up to see
A new star in the sky.
No one's talkin' brotherhood,
No one's givin' gifts,
And no one loves a Christmas tree
On March the twenty-fifth.
