The Veil Thins

rejected most holidays

don't do christmas
but still do the fourth

easter's now canned sham
exactly like that tooth fairy

anything involving lies
lies in my book of forgotten lore

yet I still prescribe
to good ole halloween

not samhain

pronounced as sow
(as in a chick pig)

(as in my loyalty to the day)

Costumes and candy
Werewolves and Witches
In these things my sheep-
Like nature never switches

Don the mask year after year
Stare through the veil as it thins
Noticing ever holiday what I most fear
that I reshaped ghosts from christmas tins.
