ODP: Parade

Put on that smile

Step lively

Dance to the music provided

It’s a holiday parade!

Never look to the side

The people lying in the doorways

Focus on the balloons

Put your attention towards the revelry

Macy’s windows decorated

All envied happy scenes

Never mind the pain you see

The hopelessness, loneliness

As they gaze wantingly

To join in the celebration

They’ll be okay tomorrow

It’s just Christmas, just another day like all the rest.
