Merry Christmas I Will Say

Poem By Randy McClave

"Merry Christmas", I say
to one and all,
"Merry Christmas", I will say
to Abraham, Muhammad, Buddha and Paul.
"Merry Christmas", I say
without vengefulness or fright,
"Merry Christmas", I will say
because Jesus was born tonight.

Strangers I hear say
"Merry Christmas" this time of the year,
But, many only truthfully say it
to offend, or to inflict others with fear,
They hope that the recipient
is an atheist or a Muslim at the best,
They say it with a spitefulness,
so, the recipient feels condemned, and not blessed.

"Merry Christmas", I will say
to everyone that is near,
"Merry Christmas", again I will say,
with hope, peace and cheer.
"Merry Christmas", I will say
for all that it is worth,
"Merry Christmas", to all I will say
for Jesus's love, and peace on Earth.

Protect it surely as you would protect your love

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.

Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

I am no man's rook
I go wherever that I look,
No one controls my every move
What I do, only I approve.

I Am My Father's Son

I Am My Father's Son
That is who I am,
Though I am, still his child
I am still a man.
