A Lost Christmas

I shall not miss that rush
& unforgivin’ xmas mess
of expectation [blown to
excess in sniped clucks] –
Manipulative matriarchs
flap – broods of fat hens
& limp cocks ruffle [as if
playing parts to do party
pieces best never won in
a narcissist’s parlour] – &
gifts given shall impress –
Feast on indebted excess
wrapped & unwrapped –
a fattening effect – I flew
from a shed of in-breds –
bird flu’ll do for them all
