An E-Christmas

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Children texting by the tree.

Yuletide carols on iTunes in my ear
Heard by no one else but me.

Checking email by the mistletoe.

Wrapping presents sure to please.
High tech toys, all the best from Japan
That don't include the batteries.

And here comes Santa on the run.
Driving his eight potential flying venison.
His workshop's stock is rated high
Since it bought out Target and Best Buy.

Everyone at their computers now
Onto their screens the family delves.
The silence dense -- conversations commence
With everyone but themselves.
