slurred speech, a poem by yosh dow

why not add happy holidays?

to that narrative,

right behind merry christmas,

if that’s your thing…

carry out your positivity

assuming you radiate any positivity.

its understood someone may not simply

go out of their way to say Happy Hanukkah

if that person wasn’t a jew.

that person on the receiving end-

may be wise to express their narrative

and respond to you with their own

seasonal greeting

all demographics should garner your best wishes.

that’s only playing fair

you protest nothing by “choosing sides”

the side you now choose is arrogance.
