Reason for the Season
What child is this that begs for more
when beneath the tree he sees the floor?
When all the presents are unwrapped
and the carolers have sung their last?
Do we blame the marketing
when it starts before Halloween?
Or do we blame the parenting
that bows before the industry?
Remember not the real reason
that we celebrate this sacred season
Forget the love, forget the peace
forget the gifts we really need
The only giving we should do
is of the dollar from me to you
and judge each other by our net worth
Forgetting to buy peace on earth
Just some modern Christmas spirit.
