In a month the much-hyped
Season begins.
Birthed in the dark,
Ill-regarded, honour-lacking,
There will be memories,
Marvel, at the entrance,
Holy & human,
Into our world.

In a month the much-hyped
Season ends.
Spending excess
Grinding to halt, defeated
As market meets manger,
Capital conquered for
Bare breath-gathering pause,
Before wheels of consumerism
Spin, up, up
To next target
Of opportunity.

In a month, the undersold
Never-growing, ever newborn
Saviour, hushed, will be
Consigned to quiet
Until retail value
Resurrects his
Earthly worth.
(Yet saints, angels,
Still sing eternal).
