What Gift I Want This Christmas

Posted: January 25, 2021

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Dear Santa !! Please come with a bit more joys and merriment

Gift us more power to forget irreplaceable losses and more containment.

Dear Santa,

Mask your face and sanitize your sleigh

Loaded with blessings and reindeers on the way

Farmers may heckle your entry

But You shower on them a “Happy Ray”

Handmade decors can’t wait for you

Donuts, pancakes, cookies all in lieu

Though Dinner might have some SWIGGY stuff

But they all are “Safe delivered” too

Toddies may have Biden -Trump fight when you are home

But you soothe them with a “shot of love” alone

You may find my wall more with some of my paintings this time

But you know na!! How hobbies popped up this lock-down

Messages may blink and blink while our selfies

It’s nothing, just an annoying twitteratis

Tweets and Retweets all draining the storage and brain

Let it go!! Anyway, it’s all in vain.

You may miss Tiktok and PubG

Heaven!! The havoc ended well before time

You may find Tom Cruise and my husband yelling

One at the crew and the other just because of torn file

Dear Santa !! Please come with a bit more joys and merriment

Gift us more power to forget irreplaceable losses and more containment

Kids miss their slides and swings

Gatherings and Kitties, all are at extinct

Broom and mop now beg of you

They just want to retire for hours a few

Warriors now need their families back

Who else if not you will hear their pray!!

We learned how to be happy in what we have

But now the chapter has exceeded almost a year

We all welcome you and the year coming

A bag full of laughter and blessings

Spare your children and make them happy somehow

May we carry tattoos of vaccine now

Ring the bell and  let’s sing merry jingles

The tree is all ready with beautiful golden fandangle

But don’t forget to knock as we may be ZOOM ready

Bow and tie on the top and in the legs just lingerie.

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!!!
