  • Merry Christmas (an original poem)


    MERRY CHRISTMAS:

    They come into this world with eyes of blue.
    They've been sent here to tell the truth.
    Cold stethoscope hints to a life of sadness-
    But his parents' hearts are full of gladness.

    We oppress them, we beat them
    and make them follow orders...
    But little children's eyes
    are like little tape-recorders.

    And once we are old and need them to help us,
    history unfolds and then they remind us...
    Forty-five years old--Red White and Blue eyes
    Recorded every lie, you told throughout your whole life.

    We wish we hadn't taught them 'time is money'
    Our fate rests with them, isn't it funny?
    We taught them to be greedy and grovel for cash
    But now that we're needy, we take it all back.

    They cover their ears with expensive head-phones
    They can't hear us from the retirement home
    Instead of loving money-we should have taught them to love.
    Now they're always running and never have enough.

    They come into this world with eyes of blue
    They've been sent here to tell the truth.
    But we have taught them - lying is better.
    And now our Christmas? A re-gifted sweater.
