The TV set flickers
It’s seven o’clock and
Rudolf’s coming on
channel 10
My red PJ’s fit snuggly
cookie firmly in
my hand
Sam the snowman
appears -and
I smile
careers, credit card bills
and chores around the house
Grown up burdens
but
Christmas time arrives
the TV set’s gone widescreen
and the cookies go
with wine
It’s seven o’clock and
Sam the snowman
appears -and
I smile
