The Christmas Season Jumper.


The Christmas seasonal jumper,

knitted who knows where,

on sale, colourful,

advertised on line,

a few happy smiling faces

no doubt, a few jokes

and dig in the rib expense

as photographs are shared

in the immediate world,

secretly hoping to make it big

as a meme;

a Christmas jumper,

be it still September,

and sharing space

with the devastation

and ruin that has torn

Puerto Rico apart.

But it is O.K., Christmas is here

always early.
