Merry Christmas - Poem by Njousi Abang

Give a child a book at Christmas
And you will make it rich and tall
Give a child extra food at Christmas
And you will make it fat and foolish
 
Give a friend a text to read at Christmas
And you will make him/her conquer the world
Give a friend clothes at Christmas
And you will make him/her fit for the comics
 
Food and clothes dress us for the grave
And make us filth and conquerors of toilets
Books, texts and knowledge make us stars
That shine forever, dead or alive
 
Indeed books and knowledge make us tall, rich
And conquerors of the world
Therefore, give a child a book at Christmas
And Xmas will forever be merry
