A Variation On A Theme By Dickens by Mitja Lovše

Mitja Lovše | Dec 26th, 2021 | poetry | No Comments


Bah, humbug and to scrouge describe my mood,
Dickens would call me a fan fiction of his work,
yet I found the perfect way to cosplay that.

I am not so sure why all might be like this,
I am not really a miserable bastard, I hope,
but these holidays put me to a misanthropy.

We all should be our best in such festivities,
we should all believe in a better world, I agree,
though we all forget the lessons quite soon.

Another change might be needed for us,
we seem to concur on the point many said,
while we differ on the paths to reach this.

Both Kierkegaard and Confucius should be heard
with a dash of Marx and Nietzsche, I assume.
