Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011


Red, blue and green, slush sleet and rain,
I’ll take the snow and white, I don’t want the rain.
Presents and gifts, fruit cake in vain,
Christmas is fun, yet winter’s a pain.
What’s it about, what’s it all for?
We buy SO many gifts, we always want more.
It rains or it snows, it’s dark or it shines,
The poor go without, the rich ones still dine.
Poverty goes on, buying is fine,
Giving is best, but I want what’s mine.
TV and radio ads all around,
Don’t know what we want, don’t care what we’ve found,
I’m tired of the season, I’m fed up with gifts,
Don’t care about presents or even if that sweater fits!
‘Cause the reason for the season, the theme of the time,
Is not about stuff, not about what is mine.
It’s all about a manger, three wise men and shepherds,
Gold, frankincense, mir, not you or I, not him or her.
About alms and charity, peace and yes love,
A baby’s birth, of war to cease
A reason to carry on,
Without enemies, without foes, only PEACE.
There’s Claus, Rudolph, Frosty and Charlie Brown,
Scrooge and Cratchet and King Wensles  I’ve found,
All of these folks, their faces all around,
Have a message of love and their givings abound.
For a long time ago, in a land far away,
In a stable was born the light and the way.
‘Cause the reason for the season, the theme of the time,
It’s not about stuff, not about what is mine.
A promise of peace, a promise of love,
Of harmony, joy and beauty from above
