What is this day to come that fills us with joy
Can it be just because of the birth of a boy?
Is it because of the glitter and gifts to buy
Or is it a day to wonder and ask why.
How does it give happiness and tears of joy
Can it be because of the birth of a Jewish boy?
Why this one event that uplifts my life
To remove and suffocate human strife.
