A Christmas Song

 

I thought it would be fun to write a Christmas song and this is what came out. Merry Christmas everyone!

 

Merry Christmas, Christmas

Christmas here, Christmas there

Christmas, Christmas everywhere!

Christmas, Christmas, where will you go

When the world’s so hot there is no snow?

Christmas, Christmas, do you care

If forest fires poison our air?

Christmas here, Christmas there

Christmas, Christmas everywhere!

Christmas, Christmas, does it make you morose

When a teenager dies of an overdose?

Christmas, Christmas, where will you run

When the next child is shot by an American gun?

Christmas here, Christmas there

Christmas, Christmas everywhere!

Christmas, Christmas, does it give you pain

When the truth loses out to a lie for gain?

Christmas, Christmas, does it make you weep

When a homeless man dies on a city street?

Christmas, oh Christmas, I know you mean well

I know you have a ton of merch to sell

You want us all to be merry and sweet

With our bellies full of turkey meat

Christmas, Christmas, how will it be

When they finally chop down the final tree?

Christmas, Christmas, where will we turn

When all we can do is burn, burn, burn?

Christmas here, Christmas there

Christmas, Christmas everywhere

Christmas, Christmas everywhere…

    A wondrously satiric little ditty. This has always been the time of year when Americans put their head in the sand and try to pretend that everything’s alright—then comes the post-Christmas miasma. The law-suit against me for causing a slip-and-fall accident at the court-house has finally been settled. I’ve learned my lessen—I’ll never mop a floor again.

    I like the song. And the pun. “A-merry-cans” inspired another one: We’re Ameri-cans, not Ameri-can’ts. Anyhow, Merry Christmyth, and have a Splendid Solstice! And be careful, this time of year I see more drivers going through red lights. It happened again the other day, right by a school!
