Winter Wonderland

Frost that chills extremities,

We slip, then slide, fall to our knees,

Our joys are shared with family,

That all year round we never see,

We drink too much and stand at bars,

Then we’re karaoke stars

The season never goes as planned,

Yet we all hail Winter Wonderland.

Smeared Lenses

Through smeared lenses I see the World,

The reality though is clear,

I have no need to speak its name,

For now, let’s call it fear,

We cower and avoid ourselves,

We’re wrapped up in our beds,

But the scariest of monsters are,

The ones inside our heads.
