Season's Ending, a poem

The season’s done, the presents out.
Was that what this was all about?
The paper trashed, the bellies full,
The children safely wrapped in wool.
The food was great, The sweets as well,
Time spent with family, really swell.
But as the new year draws so near,
Please think of others, be a dear.
To those that lost, to those in need,
To those who hunger that we can feed.
To acquaintances here and strangers far,
It’s time we collectively raised the bar.
Each of us has tribulation.
Somewhere, someone needs motivation.
If you can spend from selfless self,
And be a loving, helpful elf,
Then more’s the good if all would give.
Inspire another soul to live.
Then you will see, when next we meet,
A brand new world, a Christmas feat!
Then time with family, emotion blending,
Now that’s a perfect Season Ending!

The Gapple Glom Wendig

On this the most twentieth of twelve. I present:

The Gapple Glom Wendig
J. Foshee

Oh vample gob them drambling drove
from donster hill to hingle throw
went frilly thrill the rabid mole
didst gambol on then dribble Poe

From firebrand hove the wanton sight
the ample rove gave forth the night
when once the dewdrop in its flight
came 'round to live within

whence fervent prayer and power might
bring forth an ever eerie light
Mabe clicks and finds an errant blight
'pon xster's porch the snow

and lay about an awful fight
Those trollops float about the right
and send the fires so swift alight
that once men so called friend.

I've had enough, I'll not bespite
that gibber gallop roam and smite
the flaunted spoils of modern gripe
dug deep within the floe.

And Wendig hath the power of light
to cast a path as on we gripe
that e'er a scribbler ought to write
and write and write again.
