Musing: Holiday Music

The noise is contagious –
going for a sleigh ride,
jingling bells
around the clock.
Every speaker seems
determined to get at you,
to convert you to the Claus.
They send out worms
burrowing into your brain
incessently repeating.
It’s on everyone’s lips –
a hum, a phrase, a verse.
Forced cheeriness
in the darkness of winter.
