Christmas Village

by damommza & sunovawot

passing by a Christmas village
in a window, filled with light
tiny people, dressed in their best
scurry about, in plain sight

some are laughing, holding presents
other watch as children skate
they only come out at Christmas
to be stared at, is their fate

but what happens, when the light’s out
do they wake and souls rejoice?
no longer just tiny figures
but small souls that have a voice

do they go inside their houses
drop their presents, take a seat
time to spend with those they love this
shared embrace, though bittersweet

many months they spend in boxes
unattended, in the dark
but for just one month this season
retrieved by an angel’s hark

do they live a life in pieces
not by choice, but to our whim
come the New Year do they find that
once bright lights have become dim?

friends and family hid in boxes
in some cupboard put away
waiting, hoping that next Christmas
they’ll return to light of day

but this year will be different
for the nonce they made a plan
on the night before their shutdown
they are going on the lam

they have spent their time in plotting
everything so carefully planned
steal a fleet of Tonka trucks and
go and invade Legoland

    Ah,see, I was thinking this was tending a bit wistful, until the delightful ending! Alors, j’suis d’accord avec damommza!
