Christ's Candor


What I want for Christmas
Is an end to false pretense
For charlatans and bigots
To gain some common sense

What I want for Christmas
Isn’t momentary glee
It's enduring munificence
And constant global peace

What I want for Christmas
Is honest harmony
Authentic altruism
Worldwide civility

What I want for Christmas
Is the death of greed
The demise of vanity
For honor to precede

What I want for Christmas
Is a final end
To pretentious feats
And deceptive trend

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
