Christmas carols are not typically sung
Outside of December.
As such, I think we can be forgiven
For not getting the cadence and rhythm of the words right
As we awkwardly stumble through
Long pauses and extended notes
In very wordy verses.
It’s awkward but still worth doing.
You know what else is awkward
Around this time of year?
Saying “I am sorry”
Explaining why you’re offended.
Spending time with people you love
But not always like.
Like a Christmas carol
You know that while the essence is good
The implementation is often clumsy-
But always worth doing.
Have a good Christmas.
