my own state
Elves that work on the gifts at night
While a jolly man from maps, inspects his site
and wrappings to children the world, spilling over
in one of those boxes, could lie a four leaf clover.
A new version of gift giving did insue from his lab
drawn from poor sale promotions and customer lag,
but raindeer sleighs are a commodity too...
people these days live like mice in shoes.
Midnight candles glow, lighting darkened steps,
shadows flicker in houses where no creatures crept,
stockings hung from hearths stretch for gifts
only four leaf clovers are found, if you sift.
The price of store gifts these days are unreal
people buy what they can, and wrap what they steal,
children spill from shoe houses into ghetto streets
they sift clover meadows, what luck will they reap?
What has Xmas got to do with clover, you say
when an age old jolly works nights at no pay,
it means gift giving occurs the whole year over,
but finding true gifts, as luck, is getting that clover.
