The little ones' spirits have soared then grown rotten.
The men have all congratulated each other
For choosing the perfect tree to bring the wrong mother.
The women now glow with the light spirits bring
To those who raise glasses instead of their offspring.
Though the the family be tattered and righteousness faded
Each dawn smiles a new Christmas on the grouchy and jaded.
REJUVENATE, v. To corrupt next door.
