“SANTA to the RESCUE”
The newspaper HEADLINE said …
To lifT the flagging “economy”
And get the retailers fed!!!
But what ever happened
To empathy and kindness
The true “SPIRIT OF GIVING” …
LIBERATING those underprivileged children
In far off lands
Desolate and barely living!
Refugees are knocking on our doors …
Do we turn our backs and ignore their
Plight, predicament and cause.
Or to our Children
Who are suffering at home!
Heartbroken from domestic abuse and violence
Undergoing sadness and pain
After being forced
From their family home
So many worthy causes to choose from …
Children with Cancer
Not sure if they’ll live till next year
The Variety Club and Camp Quality
Supporting this needy cause!
I pick out “one” charity and support their dilemma
Then I feel content when Christmas Eve comes
Knowing that I have been able to help some “one” …
Wasn’t Christmas all about COMMUNITY and FAMILY?
Helping the needy ones
Who are living life
So sadly …
In Celebration of the special Birth
When Jesus Christ
Was born upon this Earth?
Well then I ask myself …
How did this Holy time turn into a frenzy of buying?
CREDIT cards maxed out and due to expire …
No more money in the bank
Interest rates growing higher!
Come New Year’s Day ~ sitting in fear?
Worrying about those payments
Now we have huge money debts to clear …
Is this what we should do to acknowledge
The “One” born in a Manger
Wasn’t He the one who became an
“Example” to live by and our “SAVIOUR”?
Doesn’t matter what Religion you are
Respecting each other’s cultures
Is the best moral value to me, by far …
Where did we forget what this special time is about?
Was this because of “peer pressure”?
“Media and retail … bullying louts …
Go out and “buy this and this and this and that”
Coz Santa is on his Way …
Wearing his white furry beard and that big red pointy hat?
An “idol” associated with lots of spending,
Money and debts and payments never ending!
Shopping like crazy
Buying presents galore
Shoving and jostling
At the MONEY MAKING retail doors?
What about Uncle “SAINT NICK”
The genuine and REAL EXAMPLE to us all
Gave the needy and disadvantaged
To enchant and enthral …
My Christmas WISH is all about
SHARING THE LOVE
How can we HELP EACH OTHER?
Who are REALLY doing it tough!
Sitting together with our Loved ones
On Christmas Day
Knowing in our “Hearts”
We’ve helped the deprived and needy
In our own
