Platitudes; overused words the meaning having been lost in time.
Just the same as the words I use in those silly rhymes of mine!
Santa Claus is in trouble. He’s lost a sack and he’s now in disgrace.
He was slithering down a chimney when a child recognised his face!
Without thinking the child asked his hero, “Is all that for me?”
Sadly Santa had no choice, what could he do but agree?
Children can’t be blamed for being greedy, it’s adults that are to blame.
Worth is judged by possessions and those without; can go live in shame.
For every happy child, there are some that have nothing of their own.
Universal happiness has spread its wings and like a bird away has flown.
Now I’m an old romantic always believing good will overcome,
But if we are Christians what have we done for Christendom?
It should not be just at Christmas that we remember those with less.
Each day is a new beginning, another chance for more thoughtfulness.
