Ho!Ho!Ho!




She ran from streets to stations,
selling her handmade creations,
shouting "Ho!Ho!Ho!" as if to boast,
the christmasness of red Santa-caps,worn in parties they host.

Then came a man who went gunning down,
everyone in that town
She asked "What you from this bloodshed gain?"
Her "Ho!Ho!Ho!" never heard again......
(55 words exactly,In wake of terrorist attacks on innocent citizens of Mumbai)

ENTRY NO.2

Ho!Ho!Ho!





Its Christmas in the air,
but there's recession and despair,
I've been fired from my job
left only to sob!sob!

I see children hosting a party,
and spring at this opportunity,
Rs 100 I get per hour,
to dress as Santa Claus in the bazaar,
"Ho!Ho!Ho!" I Scream
Is this a Dream????........
(55 words exactly,in wake of recession and job cuts)
