Supernatural Friday: A Day of Reckoning

A Day of Reckoning
Pamela K. Kinney

The sixth of December,
A timely date
St. Nicholas’s day
But wait! It’s Krampusnacht, too!
It's a day of reckoning,
So beware,
Naughty children everywhere!

Time to repent all your misdeeds,
Though it may be too late.
For St. Nicholas has his dark twin,
A fiend with long tongue and switch,
A basket strapped to his back,
Where bad children are
Caught and tossed into.

A horned being,
Shaggy goat hair all over,
Scary features; long tongue.
I plan to be good,
Will you?
Krampus is going to get you!
