All the Fun of Christmas!

It’s Christmas! – So one of us had to die!

It just so happened that you were the first, that i was the one to try!

It was in the moment that you lied, that you turned to me and the falsehood came out

It was the crazed decision of yours which provoked me to shout

& raise up on high & swipe down with scissors

& leave bloody holes & red spattered fissures.

But hey, my darling, lets look at the facts

– You’re a liar, a cheater, a bitch who attacks!

But I hear what you think, it’s still but ten on Christmas Eve

Maybe I should have just asked you politely to leave.

But seriously my love, when you wind me up with a lie

What else do you expect me to do. except to let fly?

– To stop those remarks, to stop your deciet

To halt you for thrashing me into…absolute defeat.

You see, & I say in my defence, that ‘I love you my darling!’ yet you call me a clown

That all today’s presents and gifts & my thoughts, they just simply let you down!

Now why would you do that? I mean for God’s sake, it’s Christmas day!

Why couldn’t you just shut up & listen to what I had to say!

Just for a moment, just for a change

Allow me to love you without it feeling strange.

But i guess that can’t happen now, it seems I’ve finally called the shots

& an end to to the misery, your lies and your plots!

& I’ll hold you my dear, I’ll hold you til they come!

I’ll tell them everything, I’ll describe what you done.

I’ll tell them of the anguish and everything as above,

& I’ll tell them how you treated me and how you ridiculed my love.

& they’ll agree with me, of that I’m sure, but not that I care,

That your blood on these scissors

on Christmas

was fair!
