Honor The King (xmas) Poem by louis rams


Christmas is nearing, school kids are cheering
As they are walking to and from school
They are thinking of just one rule.
Treat your parents very nice, otherwise you won’t
Get presents that night.
They laugh and talk of things to come
While their parents are on the run.
Searching for the gifts that are on their list
And the prices they see – are getting them pissed.
What happened to the days of old?
Wasn’t these toymakers ever told!
This was a time of gift sharing, and people caring
Now it’s a price war to see- how much these toys can bring?
The three kings came bearing gifts, and there was
No such thing as a Christmas list.
They had given gifts to honor a king
As the shepherd boy did his thing
He played his flute so soft and sweet
As him and JESUS eyes did meet.
The gifts from JESUS was known to man
As it spread throughout the land.
It was his love that he would bring
It wasn’t of material things.
Love is something that is not store bought
So this year let’s change our thoughts.
Give the children some material things
But show them how to honor our king.
Love is the greatest gift that we could give
And his words in us will live.
