Twisted Christmas Haiku

By Sheila Singhal

Yuletide TV fare
Makes me gag and choke
Cloying shlock is the best word

Shop til you dropkick
The nearest store clerk
Customer service a myth

A blinding snowstorm
Santa still on track
Thank heaven for GPS

Eggnog and fruitcake
And shortbread and wine
A fitness membership please

Shopping Christmas Eve
Really serves you right
Plan better next year, moron.

Man in red velvet
Watching all I do
Get a restraining order

Christmas carollers
Can drive you crazy
Keep boiling oil handy

If Santa's sleigh tips
And nobody hears it fall
Do we still get gifts?
