Christmas On by John D. Blase
In the face of seasoned waves of evil
that we would sign that old noel
that we would hang lights on branches
that we would give gifts to others
even if that gift is only ourselves—
This, this is a defiance seemingly impotent
against the principalities and powers who
daily conspire to convince us that
we are alone and love is a lie.
But do not be deceived for the demons themselves
tremble at such quaintness.
Sisters and brothers, Christmas on.
