I went for a walk in the Mall
and this is what I found,
all the peoples smiles
seemed to be upside down.
No one wore a smile
Everyone wore a frown
and even the resident Santa
looked more like a sad circus clown.
All the decorations
looked shoddy and cheap,
and I saw the resident Santa
sneak out a bottle and drink
He gave me a bleary eyed wink
as I walked away
and I thought again and again
is this truly Christmas
in the year of twenty ten?
