Oh no, not another platitude About giving thanks and gratitude! You better believe that you'll hear Them tossed around this time of year-- The only way to avoid impact Is to avoid all social contact. Don't even turn on the TV Or gratitude you'll surely see, Even in unlikely places-- Glowing, perky, smiling faces. So your best bet's isolation And self-inflicted privation... Keep joy, love, and compassion at bay To ensure gratefulness stays away.
**Hope this fits the challenge...just wanted to try something a little different than a direct counting of blessings (though I have many).
