Christmas Carol

Dickens wins again,
With his infernal ghost,
Past, Present, Future.
 
Surely I am no Scrooge,
Overly fond of Christmas,
Never one to hoard a coin.
 
But pondering the story and
The year that is coming to pass,
I find myself wondering….
 
Have I done any good,
Or added to my chains?

  1. you know, in light of this present year…and what is yet to come…you have a point…smiles.

  2. I suspect, like most of us, you’ve done both, Mark 🙂

  3. Dickens was a genius in reminding us to rethink a few things. Nicely done.

  4. i think this is a question we all should ask ourselves from time to time..and even more in the light of christmas…food for thought here..

  5. wow – killer last two line. very thought provoking.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
