the other santa

the christmas cheer ambushes his cold heart
like the stormy waves that destroy a quay
the hideous tears begin to smart
the mall's new santa quickly brushes them away

and steps out with a resounding ho ho ho!
trampling meddlesome memories of a lifetime ago

* Three Word Wednesday prompts: ambush, hideous, meddle
