A Pardon For Christmas

The God
Of mulled wine
Declined
To alter
The special
Spice
That Stablized
Equality
Within
Humanity
On the whim
Of the devil
Of midnight
Conspiracies
Who
Despised
The spice
That tasted
Too much
Like truth
Crackled
As he tweeted
A conspiracy
To sow
Instability

This is a poem I wrote for VSS365 and VSSChristmas on Twitter yesterday. The word prompt for VSS365 was alter, and the prompt for VSSChristmas was mulledwine.

The photo is one I took a few Christmases ago.
