my Christmas poem for this year
In These Times
In these times, when brutal armies are on the marchWhen the rich live fearful, behind locked gates, and the poorHave nothing to eat and nowhere to go;In these times when there is so much food in the shopsAnd so many people go hungry, when the days are darkAnd the nights darker. In these winter timesThere are still those who collect toys for children,Who give away the money they do not need,Who eat Christmas dinner with prisoners.
In these times when occupying armiesSend everyone back where they came from,To where there is nowhere to stay, or keep warm,There are still those who find shelter for a pregnant girl,Who bring a blanket for her child new born.There are still those who travel to visit with gifts and hope.In these times, in these hard winter timesThere are still and always, good people.
