Daily missive for Friday the 19th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 19th of December.

Clouds move at a different pace.
There is a hierarchy,
With ill-formed
Wispy, misty twirls,
Scudding hurriedly along,
Brushing the skirts,
Of the slow moving
Heavyweights.
Birds swirl,
They seem to know,
And put on a show,
Before moving out.
Ahead of the storm,
The seasonal rout,
That brings misery
To Christmas, begins
Its annual reign.
As suddenly,
It is winter again.

Bad news stories
Have soon arrived,
To fill the news this festive tide.
Rubber-neckers,
And headline checkers,
Indulge in a bout
Of schadenfraude
At another’s expense.
They mean no offence,
Is what they say,
In their own smug way,
Tipping a wink
Whilst raising a drink,
Glad to know
It is you,
And not them,
Who might need a bed
In Bethlehem.
This Christmas.
