Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Bah Humbug


The Holiday Season comes, rejoiced in words so saintly
The reason to be glum is, all year they’re heard so faintly

BAH HUMBUG

People get fanatic when differences appear
Go into a panic, just sameness they revere

BAH HUMBUG

War rages on our earth as brothers smite each other
What causes such a dearth of loving one another?

BAH HUMBUG

This once a year of spreading joy, is not the way to spread it
It’s hypocrisy and just decoy, which brings to us discredit

BAH HUMBUG

Why can’t our love for fellow men pervade throughout the year
With this attained, we might find then all hate would disappear

AND NO MORE BAH HUMBUG

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
