[2019] True Story, No Bullshit ( though there is Fudge o plenty in this Hollygram )

   
Mischevious is that sprite    
known as the Christmas Spirit    
   
I waited up all night    
behind the hedgerow    
just to finally glimpse him ...    
   
her ...    
   
... it?    
   
The icon never did show    
   
Neither did old Saint Nick    
or Jesus Christ the Lord    
   
Only thing that happened was    
I froze my ass off in the snow
   
   
Guess I was wrong all along    
   
but at least I wrote a new    
Holiday song while I was bored    
   
Tis more than a season for giving    
it's about being grateful for living    
in a three dimensional wonderland    
   
where so many fabulous objects    
await the touch of your hand    
not really real despite their feel    
   
or taste --- that delicious Christmas ham!    
   
An elaborate illusion choreographed    
by brains into an interactive hologram    
you'd swear was the only reality existing    
   
and it probably pains you to hear this
   
   
I mean ...    
   
these lyrics ...    
   
are still in need of finesse    
   
but the childhood experience    
of staying up all night to catch  
Santa OR my parents    
in the stockings filling act    
helped teach me    
among other things    
like being financially poor    
was that oftentimes    
   
less    
   
was    
   
more
