Christmas, All Over The World! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i watched them loading
their car with what was left...
dirty faced kids in the back....

you could tell they'd been crying.
'you got gas money, bud?
have them kids eaten? '....

'we're fine... thanks for the help...'
and they drove off on
fifteen dollar tires...

to find a new life!
and it's Christmas
all over the world!

    You're so incredibly right, sir. It's christmas all over the world, but there are so many people suffering! Have the rich gone blind by the dazzling lights? Because christmas is not about trees, lights, presents or whatever not, it's a time to help those in need. (Report) Reply
