Default Winter Contest (Poetry) Decadence


Winter is fast approaching and with it the festive season. Rich dinners and wonderful parties, presents and family time, but there is such a thing as to much of a good thing. So this season’s theme is Decadence, in all its flavours and misdemeanours, enjoy.
