Holiday Hell

Holiday Hell

An effigy of you

is burning in my head


Starved of attention

and gaining momentum

There is danger ahead


Another holiday

With sharing bread


Full of apprehension

Fraught with tension

Wishing I was dead


Insanity is doing

The same thing over again


Expecting different results

After all we are adults

Yet this is somehow in vain
