Brother Bollocks
doesn’t relate
to the classics

It’s A Wonderful Life

Miracle on 34th Street

or even

A Christmas Story

or Bad Santa

none
speak
to him

he prefers

12 Monkeys

3 Days Of The Condor

or The Mothman Prophesies

to frame him
in the proper
movie mood
of the season

Brother Bollocks
feels
for those characters

understands
those story
lines

personal tragedies
wrapped
in bows
of confusion
and grief

they bring
a satisfied
smile
to his face

a light
to his
soul

since
no matter
how bad
real life
might be

it
could always
be worse

much
worse

the end
