Christmas Cheer

Christmas is nearly here,

A season of good cheer,

And goodwill to all men

Flows so well from the pen;

But not so from the heart,

Where amity should start,

And in these festive times,

We still pursue the crimes

Of hunger, war and greed,

Though people are in need.

We feather our own nest,

To hell with all the rest

Too much “I’m alright Jack’,

Never gonna look back

To see what others lack,

When we take that next snack.

But if we look round first,

There’s kids dying of thirst,

While we enjoy a beer

As the big day draws near

For us to dine at ease,

And consciences appease

With Oxfam Christmas cards

For our Yuletide regards.

Well may you look chagrined,

We’re pissing in the wind.

True Trevor. If each of us touched the hearts of the those near us, and they did likewise, it would create a kind of collective consciousness that has its own power.

More light!

I'm not so sure that we have to indulge in too much self-flagellation about the state of the world. If each of
us (and ALL of us) restricted our kindness to good will to
all men, starting with those we know (who should do likewise - and so on), then the eventual result and effect would reach those in need to their advantage and
benefit in a giant ongoing global domino effect.
Fanciful? Perhaps. But surely, no more than thinking that
individually we have to bear guilt for something far beyond
our personal ability to effect change. Let us each
contribute something, however small, to make someone's
life better. Spread the word!!
