The Curse of Claus


Jared Cruz '23, Author

When you were younger, you believed in me

You loved when I brought you gifts

Brought you joy on Christmas Day

You loved me and fed me, took me under the cover of your Christmas tree


Now you’ve grown old and cold

You’ve forgotten me

I, who have given you life and a childhood

You’ve thrown away the tree and taken down the lights

In your eyes I see hate blended with chaos


I say this now:

Cursed be you!

Cursed be the day you forgot me!

Cursed be all that you love and cherish in this life!

You’ve forgotten me

And now I will forget you forever!
