X-Mass Lies

Isn't it weirdly funny how
broke people feel obligated
to give gifts when they have no money.

It's truth not rumors how
slick money madden advertisers peddle seductive lies to consumers.

Buying flurry, buying fury,
non-sencical buying in a hurry.
Buying anything in sight.

Camping outside in
the fridget cold, rain, snow or
sleet all night. Getting no sleep.

Following the Herd like sheep. X-Mass stories, X-Mass lies. Krampus or Santa which one lives and which one dies.

Human stampede to get inside. Robberies and purse thefts... deaths. Strip malls stripped and looted.

Mass shootings some die. The season to rush and buy. The season
in which many are victimized. Depression

Some criminalized. What is it
worth. X-Mass shouldn't have to be a commercialize lie about Jesus's birth.
