A CHRISTMAS LYRIC FOR THE NVN SURVIVORS

by Earl J. Wilcox



If (as the old adage goes)
only two things are certain,
death and taxes—
and the Apocalypse did not
happen, then what
are we left with. Right!
Taxes and Christmas fruitcake.

Earl J. Wilcox writes about aging, baseball, literary icons, politics, and southern culture. His work appears in more than two dozen journals; he is a regular contributor to The New Verse News. More of Earl's poetry appears at his blog, Writing by Earl.
