Christmas 2012

We have survived the Mayan projected end of the world and the most expensive and mud slinging campaign in our history. We will survive the fiscal cliff. Merry Christmas to each and every one. Happy New Year and go Cardinal in the Rose Bowl!

Christmas 2012 

Much of the nation this Christmas is covered by blizzards and snowy drifts
But we seem to be skiers schussing to the fiscal cliff
Our leaders have left town and Obama is working only on his Hawaiian tan
Until now it has been impossible to be tranquil and serene
When countless political ads have filled the small screen
Two billion spent on political ads leave no more money to spend
A chance for serenity now the campaign and ads have come to an end
Where are the modern Magi bringing not frankincense,  gold and myrrh
But the gift of sanity and unity to somehow this disaster defer
Christmas is a time of songs, children running down the stairs
Gift wrapping covering the floor while holiday aroma fills the air
A time to share the gift of peace with family, stranger, foe and friend
Praying that the serenity and tranquility so received will never end
It is also a time of faith and hope
And a belief that with unity we can cope
If Blue and Red become more Purple and shed the warring past
The gift of peace has a chance to really and truly last
To all Merry Christmas and  God bless
United we will end this distress
