Christmas Is Sin - Poem by Ebi Robert

I do not say Christmas is sin
when it is no sin.
But I say Christmas is sin
because it is sin and no sin.

Christmas is sin when
fathers honour a day not learned.
Christmas is sin when
mothers test the hand of their husbands.
Christmas is sin when
hardship becomes harder.
Christmas is sin when
the price of rice rises to rank
and garri grabs guts.

Christmas is sin when
men go drunk and
mothers give birth to beggars.
Christmas is sin when
silence knocks out the gun-sound.
Christmas is sin when
men see with their ears.
Christmas is sin when
tourist site is occupied with naked women.
Christmas is sin when
Christmas is not everyday.
Christmass is sin when
Christ has no birthday.

Christmas is Christmas
as Christmas is an anniversary of the
crucification.

Christmas is sin when
men celebrate and not leberate.
Who then can be happy for the birth of an enemy?
Christmas is no sin, when Christmas is Christ,
but Christmas is sin, when Christmas is crime.

    Chrisrmas should be full of goodness but this is rare as the reality of people starving and children crying is behind the glossy veil of Christmas!

    A wonderful write-finding the meaning of' Christmas'- -Christmas is no Christmas when it is celebrated without the proper spirit of Christianity.that is the sacrifice for others.When there is drudgery, when a child can not have the means to celebrate a birth day, spending lavishly without caring for the poor is a sin.In the words of the poet-
    Christmas is sin
    When Christmas is not everyday
    Christmas is sin when
    Christ has no birthday.- - Thanks for this impressive writing and also inviting me to read your poems.- - - - -10 (Report) Reply
