a genuine reason
for the jolly celebration
of Jesus Christ’s holy birthday.
but purely a burglary
through which commercial thieves rob its true spirit.
they skillfully set up their money-making traps;
so they could lure their victims to shopping malls
with the clear intention
to the last cent from every shopper’s wallet.
after the very short time of joy
from cheery season
the faked X-mad
it will come the very long time of stress
when many people go broke
and drowned in the deep sea of debts .
must be considered
as the best sacred gift.
whether you’re a believer or not
about shopping for presents.
bring the holy Christmas back to its original meaning.
Merry Christmas to all you
