Let go the savage world
Shut out the tense busy life
Seek to shut out vengeful people
Enjoy the call of family

The food and the revelry
The best times are had not
With tons of money
But with love and companionship
So don’t forget to share
A little happiness
 Enjoy the season of lights
But give generously
To those with little

All year long.
