A CHRISTMAS RHYME

Whatever it is that Christmas brings,
May it be brought to you with love,
That you delight in all those things,
That promote the peaceful Dove
But please donate a shilling where,
A shilling might save a life,
And for the children say a prayer,
Who live in such desperate strife.
Bid goodwill to all the troops,
Whose Christmas is a war,
Forgive those vile terrorist groups,
Lest we ourselves, deplore,
For only love can bring us peace,
Only peace will bring us more.
