Two a.m. and all’s well,
Christmas hies towards us
Ever faster year on year,
Shops are overflowing fit to burst
But many have no penny in their purse.
Insatiable greed has pushed the goods
Beyond the means of common folk
And many struggle to buy food
But look on helpless while others cream the fat
And steal the grub from out the mouths of babes,
God’s message to us all of love and faith
Forgotten in the struggle to survive.
