Christmas Poem


                                                                                                                        CHRISTMAS  2014

                             This Christmas

                              I am getting edgy

                              About a lot of things

                               Putin and the Ukraine

                                Harper and Trudeau

                                The Falling price of oil

                                 And the Canadian dollar

                                 Isil, Barbarous and uncivilized

                                  Israel and the Palestinians

                                   Australia and the Chinese

                                   Canada and the Aboriginals

                                    The U.S. and the Blacks

                                     And the window on Climate Change.

                       But this I know for sure

                                      We will celebrate this Christmas
                                      With trees and lights and carols
                                      Turkey and the trimmings
                                      And gifts, many gifts
                                      Of laughter, warmth and  love.

                                                                                                                           Margaret  R. Cunningham
