Christmas Messages

Through the rain
I read,
Bypass the Hassle
on the back of a bus,
but most people
ignore the injunction
and tie themselves
up in Christmas urge,
push and shove,
shout and shush.
A Christmas tree
in the arms of one
consumer terrorist
an accidental weapon;
flaying shoppers.
burst underfoot.
swell the sweet streets
singing of shepherds
and distant deliveries.
