AFTER BOXING DAY

Confusion rules, we move into Christmas,
Ghost story before bed on big day eve
Not a patch on reality horror
Of year gone before, truly a nightmare.
Most of us speak up for democracy,
Accept, sometimes grudgingly, power wrought
By “winners” of elections in our name.
Majority rule accepted in our interest,
But sometimes, it’s clear, people make mistakes.
Pups sold as pedigree turn out to be
Vicious mongrels disguised as labradors
Who care not for those that feed them daily.
After Boxing Day watch as flags fly high,
Laws will change, too late for to work out why.

Harry Rogers in the Yellow Room, Christmas Eve, 2021.
