Russia's Christmas plans
gifts of death, destruction, grief
we cannot forget

concrete, glass and steel
put up lights, tie off with bow
still steel, glass, concrete


n.b. People raising glasses to Christmas on 2nd December, leaving just eleven months of the year festive free. This is in a country where a minority (46%) now identify themselves as Christian.

I don’t see or hear this much propaganda about any other belief system, other than Free Market ideology, obviously.
