It’s Almost Christmas..!


I write this in September
And I can already see my breath
Because the temperature is falling
To fifty degrees or less;
There are frosted mornings
And skies are turning gray;
Next thing, there’ll be snowdrifts
Fit for a sleigh.

In stores, they’re gearing for Halloween
With pumpkins on display;
After October 31, we’ll count the days
To shop til Kris Kringle Day;
Just when I thought the craze was over
And the presents were put away,
Alas! I hear Santa “ho-hoing”,
It’s nearly Christmas Day.

Christmas is a magical time,Is there any doubt?
But I’m going to need a psychotherapist
To get my anxeties out!
The sugarplums might be dancing,
But they’re messing up my mind;
The silver bells aren’t doing much
To help me unwind.

September comes and October goes,
November is just a glance;
Once again, there’ll be invitations
To another holiday dance;
I’ll decorate the Christmas tree
With icicles, stars, and lights,
But I’ll need a ton of eggnog
To get me through this night!
