Festive Times

When people gather at festive times  to worship their gods, they show to the world how truly empty they are:
Hands hauling heavy plastic bags, plastic hearts pumped by jingle jingoism
Set by the Past with no progressive visions of the Future –
Simply we will survive, we will endure, we will crawl through the whips of Time
That land upon our backs and be contented to be only believers:
In words that are etched onto stone tablets, eternal: eternally cold, eternally severe.
