Damaged

.

Silhouetted on the hill a hump,

a swollen chunk of detritus, wept  —

The smell assailed us long

Before we reached the dump.

Men and women dressed in rags

Scratched a living or a dying

Desperate like wild animals

Damaged by care-less-ness

Fouled dreams, failed chances

Used and abused by worldliness,

Heartlessness, perceptions changed,

Became infections,

Until they learned to hear and see

Differently from you and me —

Nonentities, expecting and receiving nothing.

Little Drummer Boy

.

Deck the hall with bells and holly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

‘Tis the season to be jolly,

Fa la la la la, fa la la la.

.

Normal children

At first glance

But one

Stands apart

Draws my heart

.

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
.

He watches his feet

Tries to march to the beat

His eyes slide to the side

To see the others

His sisters and brothers

.

I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That’s fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
.

Arms askew he strums his drum

.

 Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?
.

I want to wrap him up

Take him home

Keep him safe and warm

Calm his fears

My face is wet with tears

.

I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
