Free Verse About The True Meaning Of Christmas

As I get older
I’m not sure I get wiser
But sometimes my perspective can shift
And views I once held
Now seem as alien to me
As an actual alien might seem
If aliens existed
And I were to meet one of them

My perspective on Christmas
Has certainly changed
Many times over the years

As a child
I always thought it was about
The aquisition of toys
Though as time passed
I began to believe
It was about drinking and eating to excess

In more recent years
I’ve associated Christmas
With family and friends
And just being a bit nicer to people

But as I sit here
Watching my daughter
Singing Christmas songs
And occasionally smiling at me contentedly
As she plays with her Christmas gifts
I have come to realise
That Christmas truly is
About the aquisition of toys

And it has nothing whatsoever
To do with aliens
Unless they are toy aliens

    You should turn this into a film. Maybe call it “Toys Actually.”
