Treasure Island

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


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


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


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


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

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
