Office Christmas Party

The fake ivy
Climbed up the fake gingerbread wall
And curdled 'round a fake sprig of mistletoe
Hanging precariously
From a fake wooden beam
Giving fake support to a fake ceiling.
Our feet infirmly planted on a fake leaf-laden floor
My true love gave to me
A fake kiss
In front of all of our fake friends
Smiling fakely
And singing
"Peace on Earth, goodwill to men."
Then they all got drunk
And weaved their way home in their BMW's.
