It that time of the year again
When kids stalk parents for a sight of black SANTA
When kids at the sight of Santa experience a rush of delight not found in yellow FANTA
When sweet Xmas songs & carols & boring & beautiful programs fill the AIR
When we fraternize with old friends & family we last saw last YEAR
With gifts, visits & food to REMEMBER
With sparkling new dresses for every family MEMBER
With the ecstasy of the coming year IMMINENT
And the love & the fanfare EMINENT
December brings with it happiness or helplessness
The helpless deal with lack, the happy beam with sparks
And yes, 12 is not just another NUMBER
That you’ve come this far shows resolve as thick as TIMBER
Refusing to slumber or turn a cheap ROBBER
And that’s why I pray for you this DECEMBER:
Near your BORDER
There’ll be no BOMBER
Those that seek your life shall kiss DEATH
You’ll bask in glory & HEALTH & WEALTH
Your ears will be filled with glad tidings
Your eyes will see your mountains CRUMBLING
You’ll smell freshness of victory, it’ll be HUMBLING
Your lips will speak life & LOVE
You’ll touch & step into greatness given from ABOVE
Gear up for your happiest, liveliest, loudest, loveliest, December yet!
