'Tis the Season: A Chronical
In deference to the hearing heard,
Indulgent listeners await the aftershock
Of the balance due--at what cost,
The final word.
Indifference lacking clarity, intermediaries
Reflect upon visions: factual observations,
Empiric optics, skewed perspectives,
Illusory conceptual palliatives.
Picturing pictorial features that model
Cultural ambiance (fashionable lifelike
Appearances), bias saturates the mediated
Scrutiny; the inner dialog posed with
The external conversation, the influence
Is embodied: insecurity ego building.
Disposition analysis, aesthetic principles,
Attitudes that define standards--deliberate
Deliberations suss the speculative account:
Given circumstances, choice decision,
Editorial focus coalesces the secular
Cycle: ideology mobility, societal
Oscillations, tribal normalization--the
Renewable source(s) propelling notions;
Predictive indices predicate references
To the past that quell complexities,
Expedite recuperation from the
From the malaise affecting the masses,
A turn to the immersive esprit of the spree,
The celebration, the joy of giving, the
Granting of good will.
