My special wish for Christmas

If I had a magic ladder, I’d climb

Up to the top, I’d climb till I reached

Heaven, and I’d have a word with

God. Do you know what state your

World is in? Have you had the time

To care? Is it worth my time to make

The climb? What of all those souls

Down there?


If I had a magic mailbox, I’d bypass

Santa Claus, a stocking full of Chinese

Crap is hardly what I want. My thoughts

Are with the elderly, the ill, and the infirm,

And all those on a knife-edge struck by

Worry and concern. And in that magic

Mailbox, a goodwill thought for you, the

Spirit of recovery, and the will to see

This through.


If I had a magic rainbow, I’d cast it far

And wide, a crock of gold for everyone

That lockdown kept inside, I’d call upon

A leprechaun to aid me in my task, A little

Fairy mischief to conjure up a laugh. The

Days would all be sunny, albeit wintertime,

With hearty hugs for those you love, and

Those that you just like. My special wish

For Christmas? Three guesses? No, just

One, A happy, healthy, world to come,

Come 2021.
