|We're being overtaken by the muck of the world, and we all know it.
So, we sigh and let history repeat itself.
Many know our time is near, even the non-believers admitting it's so.
So, we sigh and let history repeat itself
Don't rock the boat. Ruts are the easiest way to travel. Like water, we travel the path of least resistance.
A harsh look at our own reality, Janet. And it's like looking into a cracked mirror.
We need less tinsel and more love. Run for office and lead us out of our suicidal misery, Janet. You've got my vote!

|Wonderfully put, Janet. I like the way you reference the bread and the wine in the midst of all the feasting. May you know peace and inner light amidst all the facade and turmoil. I know you will create space within your heart even if outwardly your body is hard-pressed! Blessings to you and yours at this special time. LOL K xx|

|Unfortunately, this is way too true. Christmas, like a lot of other holidays, has become the cause of much dread. A very tragic outcome, I'm afraid. Nice write, though. You shine a little more light on the problem.|

|I have yet joined the hustle and bustle, as I sit here and read many a poem regarding such... Felix has a point,"...if we let it". I chose to shop and buy little presents for my children, fullfilling their dreams and wonder as they fall asleep with such anticipation...as if waiting for His second coming!
I like your write and it does make one think...where have we come and why? Greed is the only answer I can come up with, so therefore I will avoid it. And bread and Wine IS all that matters!
Love and Peace~

|Excellent poetry. A powerful message throughout, especially the ending.|

|This is ever so true.....all this shopping and fussing and fuming is hardly the "reason for the season". Too many people are on the wrong mission at this time of year.....we should try to remember what this is all about - and it isn't putting presents under the tree that's for sure!|
