the long long year ahead

on christmas day
we get up when
the youngest one
says please
we open giftschristmas-presents-595850__340
they beat their games
and watch their dvds
next day they file
away their gifts
according to what sort
they’re organized,
for kids of mine,
it’s like a second sport
next day hence
they mope about
they don’t know
why they’re living
and this goes on
for many days
’til round about
when once again
excitement makes
them both come back awake
