Dark Christmas – Nice

Some interesting prompts over at Mindscapes  Thought I would do something a little different on the Christmas themes.

mindescapes Christmas Challenge 2017

Red clad he stalks outside your home

He sneaks in while you sleep

Your kids he watches in their beds

through frosted windows peeps


You lock your doors and fasten shut

Your windows for you dread

Into your home he will still come

And find you in your bed


He looks for reasons, punishment

Will follow have no doubt

If you raise you voice or dare to cry

And god forbid you pout


For down your chimney he will come

His clothes all stained with black

And lingers in your living room

There with his bulging sack


He spills his goods upon your floor

They’re all the things you need

All wrapped with bows and glittery

The symbols of your greed


And unto him you pledge yourself

And worship at his throne

To him you pledge eternal self

Until he calls you home


Then in his workshop you will slave

and he feeds upon your pain

and day and night you’ll toil until

December comes again
