Another Colorful Season

and STEW ALBERT

Orange is the color for the holiday alert,
just before Red, the color of dread, but
continue living normally this hopeful season–
though the days are potentially terrified

Colorful Orange is the codeful background
for Silent Night car searching and valeting
Holiday Airport Homeland Security stand-by–
Santa’s locked and loaded little helpers

American guardians causing indivisible
traffic jams showing Osama the Bad Santa
their not just fooling around with chaos–
directions will inevitably to be delayed.
