Modern Day Christmas Snapshots.


Modern Day Christmas Snapshots.



Angel from heaven


A cute angel from heaven came down to Earth,

Fell on her bum and lost some fat from her girth.

Now she stands on street corners, winking at men

N’ gets paid for her “blessings” as oft’ as she can.



Santas on street corners


Santas on street corners; do they give presents?

If you believe that you’re missing the essence.

Their rosy cheeks and smiles may suggest honey,

But for every Ho! Ho! they collect money.



Mum with kid visiting Santa at the mall.


“There, there my sweet Charlie, sit on Santa’s lap,

Hurry, move your arse, or I’ll give you a slap,

I must take a photo, to show you’re happy,

To turn jealous your good for nothing daddy.”



Kid with Santa


Kid on Santa’s lap looking the innocent,

Hoping to get the most expensive present,

When he’s disappointed he creates a din

And Santa receives painful kicks on his shin.



Midnight Mass


The midnight Holy Mass coming to its end.

Was it soul inspiring? No use to pretend.

The priest blesses his flock with a pious grin…

And counting the collection can now begin.



…and finally… Peace on Earth…


Battlefield falls silent. Old enemies rest.

Peace on earth for the night is now manifest.

Tomorrow at dawn a thousand throats will yell

And many thousands more will end up in hell.


© P. J. Oszmann (Xmas 2009)






All that above may seem cold and cynical, but I’m not making up fiction; I give it as I see it. Admittedly - and as always - there is another side to every coin.


Therefore, in what supposed to be the true spirit of Christmas:


I wish the very best, with good health, happiness and peace to all my Readers and fellow Authors for the Festive Season and for the Coming Year

Oh, dear Peter...we have gotten to an age when all the "crap" seems so cold and worthless...

But then, during the year, we have made a friend or two...and even when you're cold and cynical...

I'm very happy to have met you! Richest blessings to you my friend!

I have to completely agree with your "take on things," Peter. Your theme is familiar to me. Love and peace to you,

Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 12/23/2009
Why I much prefer the REAL Reason for the Season, the Christ ... the modern (i.e., commercialism) version just too sad. Takes out all the joy and goodwill towards men. A poignant write, well done, Peter.

(((HUGS))) love and Merry Christmas!, Karla.
