A poem to start the christmas season.
Jinglebells and mistletoe
Toys in Santa's sliegh
Over the hills we go
Laughing all the way
If only it were so bright
For those behind barricades
Where a silent night
Is all for which they pray
In our holiday mood
And our laughter so gay
Let us not forget the good
That was begot upon this day
Remember the souls who suffer
Their lives filled with pain
From behind our buffer
Of tinsel and green
The bombs exploding
Pleas of mercy fill the dark
The entire world imploding
Unless unto the pleas we hark
Let us prove our worth
By reaching out a helping hand
Let there be peace on earth
And truly good will toward man
