A CHRISTMAS POEM IS CALLED FOR

By 3rd December 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

A Christmas poem is called for, that was the latest cry
Has it all been done before, I ask the reason why

We’ve read it all and we’ve seen it all and heard it in the sky
Of Santa and his reindeers, as they come flying bye

Busy shops, Carol singers fill the air with Glee
I’m busy working shifts right now, so surely think of me.

Pirate ships and castles built on the front room floor
Children’s toys a plenty they can’t want for any more

But there’s different story passed down from hand to hand
About the birth of a special child born in the Holy Land

Yes it’s really needed, this story to be told
Do I sound quite cranky, am I getting old?

If this Christmas story, Unites the world in peace
What a Christmas present, if all the wars could cease
