The white-robed ghost
A feline muscled host
Appeared through the brisk night
Amidst a flickering candlelight
Leave me alone!
Why hath thou entered my home!
I have earned my keep!
Thou shalt learn to be wiser!
This Christmas Eve night expect little sleep!
The Ghost of Christmas Past fiery eyes glowered at the trembling town financial lender.
Scrooge’s gravelly voice cried out with foolish pride!
Have I not unto Caesar always rendered?
The admonishment enveloped the room with spectral stare
Your time spent here
Tis your piety to the working class and poor that shalt be remembered!
What thou can take away
On each man/woman’s fated day?
Matters nil the riches brought forth to Caesar!
What you have done
As seen by the sun
Not for yourself
But unto others
Is your final judgement
Nay material blessings!
Do you understand now Ebenezer?
