my annual Official Christmas Poem

"the comeback kid"

final seconds tick
down to zero,


game over - or is...?

she's dropping back, kids!

it's a Hail Mary pass
a Baby Jesus football, caught
in the end zone, defenders
breaking down in tears


as the cheers
for the home team
Final Score -
- unbelievable!
Saints: 21
Sinners: 23

what an all-time upset

Wow, were you drunk when you wrote this? It's awesome, not that poems are better when written drunk, but some are.... some are....

Nope, not drunk! Watching football.

I wrote that a week or two ago and then "forward scheduled" it to post Christmas Eve at one minute to midnight.

I thought it captured some essential spirit of the season!
