Blue neon angels with
Golden trumpets and halos
Strung along snowflakes and
Holly on lampposts herald
Peace and goodwill triumphantly
To all without a sound
As I drive home

While the man on the radio
Talks about violence and sex
In comic books and his hopes
Of a multi-billion dollar
Franchise complete with
Action figures of the heroes
For young children

And I think to myself how
Fitting the metaphor of the
Silenced divine messengers among
Passersby in the night where
Violence and greed are eagerly
Explored after the Christmas
Sale signs have disappeared
