The Rendering of Ebenezer

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.

Bah! Humbug!

Scrooge’s gravelly voice cried out with foolish pride!

Have I not unto Caesar always rendered?

Be aware!

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?
