For Lin...

Lin  is feeling the stress of the season...

                         Merry make – they tell us all.
                         String the lights, deck the hall.
                         Bake the cookies, dress the tree
                         Like a Martha Stewart wanna-be.

                        I 've no time for all of that -
                        Stress at work, the kids, the cats.
                        All these years – it's gotten old,
                        But it's tradition! – so I'm told. 

                       “Where's the trains? Where's the holly?
                       Why so grumpy, just be jolly”
                        That is what I hear each day.
                        But oh if I could have my way…

                        I'd simply hang the mistletoe,
                        Pour a drink and Let It Go!
