Thankful I Am To Witness Another Christmas
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
I am up and feeling blessed.
Thankful I am to witness another Christmas.
And honored to have lived to experience Kwanzaa.
And as I listen to a local radio station,
Do a live 'feed' from a nearby church.
The crispness of the music played by the orchestra...
Seems to be purposely drowning out the vocals,
Performed by soloists...
Who sound as if marbles are in their mouths.
And destroying every Christmas carol I loved as a child!
Singing with a grandeur and pomp that poops.
