Listen and we won’t tarry long on your merry Christmas day;
We just wanted to remind you that this day of holiday cheer
Is often one of the most drear and lonely for the isolated souls,
Those with empty bowls and holes in their roofs . . .
If they have roofs, and this is proof of their poverty,
Not only in deprivation of material goods but in personal care
As they sit in an old chair somewhere out there – alone, lonely
Can you, will you hear their cry as you eat your Christmas pie?
Not to keep you long, we just wanted you to know that some
People feel like they don’t belong and, of course, they’re wrong
But how will they know unless you show them someone cares?
Now, merry Christmas to you and yours . . .
Just remember, please, what you’ve read!
