The 12 Miseries of Christmas (1)

Let It Snow -------- (Haikus 7.0) by David Macleod

(i) Gender

snowmen, snowwomen
Is there a real difference
Yes some have snow balls

(ii) Hips

the infirm and snow
are not such good bedfellows
broken hips replaced

(iii) Seeing

I can't see the snow
though it is thick on the ground
eyes wide: Snow Blindness

(iv) Blue

It's a Blue Christmas
for the snowbound elderly
hypothermia Kills

(v) White

whiteness of snow
Christmas depression follows
forecast suicide

(vi) Blood

blood is on the snow
domestic violence spikes
such festive beatings

(vii) Slush

the snow turns to slush
a brief smile turns to dark thoughts
of morbidity
