Jingle Bells

Jingle bells come once a year

jingle bells are heard everywhere

happy faces can be seen

as the festive season gleams

everyone we see, buy a christmas tree

the creche is set for all to see

all the goodies bought

gifts beneath the tree.

carols are sung with warmth

by those who cannot see,

the imperil of those who do not

have a bite to eat.

each little one who has no

home, the likes of vanity

they suppress their hungry voice

for elite society.

hunger pangs, drive some to steal

an apple from a stall,

or perhaps climb a christmas tree

for the fun of it all.

remember them, the little ones

who been neglected by uncaring minds

are not to blame but given

a non-judgemental second chance.
