No Snow Falling

No snow falling tonight all is dark wet and dreich,
Stars cant be seen all hidden by low lying cloud,
Shepherds struggle market price for sheep is too low,
children born in squalor no stables left,
now turned to houses for pribileged and rich.
Wise men are shunned gifts not from them,
Heavenly choirs silenced none can hear,
auld drunks in fake beards to earn a buck,
amid the yearly greed no one actually gives a f…
walk by them and laugh gifting profanities in love.
Peace on Earth, goodwill to ALL ,love in the mouth,
war,bigotry and hate in the heart.
Those fleeing wars are treated as dirt,
what happens to them one day may be us,
will we be as smart to look for help.
Crying out to God or Allah to save us ,
but ignoring when life is good and sweet,
what a surprise we will find out one day,
that a child who was born in the middle east,
was to transcend all and to unite us as one.
