Boughs Of Holly

Trees with tinsel
Mistletoe
Boughs of holly
Wreaths
Candy canes and eggnog
Rowdy bunches shopping
not for frankincense and myrrh
But because someone said they should
and there are holes in souls
that are looking for the meaning
Losing everything while looking
Messes everywhere they’ve been
being rowdy
It’s important to win
If Whitman’s Christmas chocolates get sold out
before you get a box
don’t worry
they’ll be replaced with Valentines
before those shelves are empty
Lost souls with holes
can’t seem to see what they are doing
Losing everything while looking for
everything they’re looking for
