The Mystic Sneak

So…Christmas
You Sneak
Who are you
And why do you now make me nervous?

This time
I first saw you window dressed
In tinsel
In sparkles
Blinging like a catalogued obsession
Waiting
For an early fix

This time
We hardly blinked
Our eyes, suspicious as mice
Clocked, was it respectfully?
As the obligatory intake of breath
Recognised all past, present and future dues

And so Christmas
Your day has come
Again
And some of us are on tender hook edge

Were it not for the children
The prospect of red wine
And the unquenchable thirst for peace
