image for A Partridge in a Pear Tree, 2009 Interpretation

On the twelfth day of Christmas (winter solstice), my true love sent to me

Twelve drummers drumming, ($75 per drum courtesy of OPEC)

Eleven pipers piping, (climate change is causing the sky to fall)

Ten lords a-leaping, (a session of the US Senate or the House of Lords)

Nine ladies dancing, (a TV program)

Eight maids a-milking, (a PORN movie)

Seven swans a-swimming, (protected as an endangered species)

Six geese a-laying, (an aircraft bird strike)

Five golden rings, (at the going gold rate of $1200 per ounce)

Four calling birds, (presidential or prime minister's advisors)

Three French hens, (KFC fast food)

Two turtle doves, (a fiction writer of alternate history)

And a partridge in a pear tree!
