THE ANGRY WORLD: The Holly Jolly Hangover

That heavy metal industrial junkyard hangover

digs in a little deeper come Christmas Time

Cheap liquor melting your guts

Synthesize them into reindeer road kill

The lamentable sense of worthlessness

Amplified

Off key Christmas Carols spouted from annoying revelers

ripping through busted speakers and chintzy microphones

Embarrassment, Guilt and Mediocrity

are my Three Wise Men

Blinking Christmas lights flash like demonic eyes

Morse code telegraphing my shame to neighborhood kids

I pull a flat beer from my dying fridge

Muster up feeble courage to log onto the computer

I order a hooker dressed as a slutty Mrs. Santa

The last of my money and pride have disappeared
