Do we care it’s Christmas?

It’s Christmas time;
the bells are ringing out
and all around the decorations shout
their joyous messages of love and peace
and there’s no need to be afraid,
so cease
the wars, be with your friends and family,
have wine and turkey, decorate the tree;
at Christmas time
no-one should feel alone
and left to ‘suffer’, but the people moan
at those who’d rather just do their own thing.
“We let in light and banish shade”
you sing;
we close the curtains, live the way we choose
it’s not as if we have that much to lose.
For those like us, it’s just another day
It’s nothing special, not in any way
