Advent

This is when it all begins:
The guilty tallying of sins
Committed since last Boxing Day.
Is one Bad Thing a month okay?
How ’bout a Bad Thing twice a week?
Transparency is all we seek.
Is there a fair, impartial body
That can say what’s “nice” or “naughty”?
Or, as I suspect, are we
At mercy of one man’s decree?
Will three Good weeks be good enough
To tip the scales? This year’s been tough
On everyone. Does context count?
If so, exactly what amount
Of leeway can we factor in?
Fine. I’ll be good till he says when.
(And then I’ll be myself again.)
