Very soon with
december grinding on
the gorge rising
commercial adventure
reaching it’s zenith
never forget
that in the end
after all the doubting 
disgust with commerciality
hypocrisy and lowdown
bad retail and customer behavior

holly always wins out

in the final moments
when you’ve given up
and reached that never
again not me moment
even that familiar
who thought this up

holly always wins out

and it aways has from 
ancient kindled fire 
on the darkest night
when evergreens have 
finally won the stage 
when comfort and peace
are dreamt in the 
deep cold of the 
long and brilliant night
children asleep 
toes to the heat

holly always wins out
