Junk Mail or Is It?

by BeasPeas

Oh, you are... are you? Contest Winner 

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #14-401-B-C
You are looking at junk mail.
It's Christmas.
Here's another calendar.
Each charity sends one.
They never fail.

You are April's kitty.
So cute.
It looks like your cat!
Photos are mighty fine.
May line the litter box with them.
Good potty material.

You are up to your ears in labels.
Got dozens!
Here's more.
Can't use them all,
not in this lifetime.
Anyway, print is too small.
Who still writes letters?
Everybody uses the internet.

You ARE able
to use those labels.
That is, if you're creative.
Substitute them for Scotch tape.
When re-gifting that chia pet.
Hey, it might be an option!

You are aware, I'm sure,
there ARE worthy causes,
hoping for contributions.
It's to be expected.
A check to keep the lights on.
No harm in that.

Come to think of it,
when WAS your last donation?
Let's take a look.
Ah, here's one.
"Save the Arctic Gnat?"
Where's the checkbook?

Oh, you are... are you?
Contest Winner

This contest challenge was to free verse and to start each stanza except the last with "you are" as if talking to myself. Since the contest (which I won) I have revised it a bit. Thank you for reading.

At Christmas time, we're inundated with calendars and address labels. Who do we choose to donate to? Some, none, all?
