People can tell me

hey, how are you

but then when you say it's

no good, man, it's true


They look at you puzzled

and often turn red

in fact they don't care if

you're alive or half dead


They tell you I love you

as soon as you leave

but would they then really

regret it and grieve


Because it's not honest

it's just a say

it's so superficial

as if I'd to pay


the bill at the counter

for coffee and food

I say thank you lady

't was good, understood


One should remember

to good separate

what comes from heart

make no mistake


People have feelings

they know what they feel

not only behavior

can tell what is real


They often hide by

behaviors brought up

but by your directness

you might make them stop


Christmas has come

so do not pretend

'cos faking some feelings

don't pay in the end.


To all here on WB a nice party with lots of good booze and drink :-) That poem was written in memory of all the fake "once a year feelings" I noticed over the years.

Stone - forget the falseness, the hypocrisy and the consumer blitz - celebrate and raise a glass to those who care!!

There are still some real feelings out there—even if they’re hard to find in the crowd this time of year. Merry Christmas!

My friend, the Stone-Eater,
On brinks you do teeter:
But there is a trend
That the falsehoods will end.

Stone Eater,
Now, an alternative point of view is that people are so nasty the rest of the year, that they've forgotten to say nice things that sound real.  Maybe they really mean what they say, but they're so out of practice, it sounds false.
Happy holidays.  I really mean it.
