SANTA J. SQUAMATA'S CHRISTMAS OF EVIL


(performed by Jason Squamata at The TRUTH OR FICTION? Christmas Special at the Funhouse Lounge: Portland, OR on 12/16/12.  Composed shortly beforehand.)...

Ho...
Ho...
Ho.
A very Merry Christmas to you all.
I trekked across the frozen wastes of NoPo to be here tonight, not for the ego stroke of an audience...your laughing...your clapping hands...
I didn't come here merely to "entertain" you.
I came here to give you all a gift.
However blue your Christmas may be, it's a brighter thing than the yule I knew in 1993.
I came here to cast the shimmering bits of your accumulated Christmases into higher relief.
I came here to tell you all about my CHRISTMAS OF EVIL.
To paint this grisly picture...this advent calendar of shame...I need to tell you who I was in '93.
