A Christmas Poem

As I’ve wandered down the road of life
I’ve learnt and understood
That all of us are equal
With capacity for good

I’ve been excited by the simple fact
That we’re all made the same
From seven pounds of Stardust
Cooked on a cosmic flame

Its in the way we live our lives
But its not for us to judge
If one man be a millionaire
Or another man a drudge

So Merry Christmas one and all
The time is nearly here
The time to care and give our love
The time for us to share

Hark the echo’s of time gone by
To repay the love inherited
To forgive those who don’t want to care
And pity those less spirited
And so I put to you upon this day
Let no one here Deny
That Love and Peace will rule the Earth
And Man will never die
