 once upon a time

 
 
We’re asked to write a poem at Christmastime 
a lovely poem, all about the joys of goodwill to
all men. Then I think how we can equate the hunger
poverty and despair of the third world countries .
 
But we live here, not over there were there are wars
and despots ruling nations stealing the presents of life from
men, women, and children. Happy Christmas to the masses
starving in the third world, hope you’re alive in the new year
 
Don’t blame the west we sent our sleigh, but it was overturned
by politicians and administration, striving to have themselves
a very happy Christmas. We shan’t begrudge them their cheery
fireside Yuletide, happy new year, all you need is bullet in the ear
