Advent 2006: A Carol

I have to admit I'm not entirely convinced this is a Christmas poem. Yes, I found it in a book of Christmas poems, entitled Christmas Poems, but it doesn't strike me as particularly Christmas-y, except in the sense that it sounds like something the one of the Ghosts would have shown Scrooge. Nevertheless, I think it's a very good poem, if somewhat on the bleak side.
