Second Thoughts

Second Thoughts

But what can Christmas mean if people starve?
Another chance to show you love your friends?
A giant bird now waits for you to carve
Is this where all your Christmas spirit ends?

It’s not about a church or fairy tales
It’s not just toys for kids who have enough
Not three days off before the Winter sales
Let’s think about the World not “getting stuff”

I love to see a happy smiling face
And giving gifts returns that gift to me
But how we treat the World is a disgrace
This isn’t how the human race should be

Enjoy your meals, your family and friends
Then think about the World, and make amends
