A Christmas Carol


“What do you want with me?” by E. A. Abbey. Illustration for A Christmas Carol, “Stave One: Marley’s Ghost.


Ghost of a Christmas Past
Don’t rattle chains at me
Or mock me with your padlocks
Of distant memory.

Ghost of Christmas Present
Don’t talk to me of need,
Or ignorance and want,
Or where that path will lead

Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
Don’t haunt me with your silence
Or point your ghoulish finger
In darkness and defiance.
