Christmas in Vietnam

The Christmas music in Saigon
Is enough to drive anyone insane.
Strange glockenspeil renditions of
Carols and familiar festive tunes.
Even George Michael is remembered.
Forever consigned to a Last Christmas.
Frozen in an Alpine Ski Lodge.
All buffant hair and heavy coat.
Chiming, imbibing, living on fresh air.
So distant from the man he would become.
