Årets julsaga

(Som alltid: copyright C. Landgren 2012 -> )

I woke one Christmas morning
and the snow fell mixed with soot,
I went outside to try to see
whatever was afoot

With my eyes up to the sky
I saw the strangest sight;
wreathéd in a cloud of steam
was S:t Nicks brand new flight


His reindeers full of clockwork
their eyes all glowing red;
and Rudolfs nose it did the same
though they were all undead

And forced to draw a mighty sled
throughout the winter skies;
their boilers fed by blackest coal
 - though dead, they´ll never die


And in the sled a great lord sat
 - He was a frightful sight!
Driving like a man possessed
all through his endless night

From house to house he´s speeding
borne on steal and steam;
 - Pretty scary but benevolent
this full-filler of dreams


he´s buildt the slead he´s driving
and all the presents too;
and though he is a gentleman
he´s -always- watching you!

to know if you´ve been naughty
or if you have been nice;
and if you should be punished
or get his finest price


made by his skilled tinker-hands
of clockwork, springs and cogs
and his reward the faith we show
with misteltoe and yuletide logs

So this one night let yourself believe;
be glad, rejoice, get drunk
´cause from the North there comes a man
no logic can debunk;

 - Our Santa now is dressed in brown
his tailored suit patterned with gears
so raise a toast to nostalgia
and have a steampunk Christmas the year!

As I said in my earlier notes, it has as of today been twenty years since the death of my uncle. Twenty long years of paranoia, fear and though suppressed by endless effort… a certain apprehension.   I know in my bones that but for a mir...

    My days I spend in loneliness mind-numbing Into this unlife forced by bitter fate Each day´s the same as all the ones before it No fear, no faith nor love or even hate   Prime solace found in grapes so sweet, fermented Kind Bacchu...

Det var ett par år sedan jag skrev det här, men jag tycker fortfarande (ingen falsk blygsamhet här, inte) att det är bland det bästa jag skrivit, och då det börjar kännas att nättrena inte är sommarvarma längre kan det vara värt att lägga upp igen. ...
