“MIO BABBINO CARO!” a poem Tuesday: December 4, 2018 for my dear friend Bob Patterson, who came back home, once again!
In some “religious sectors,” CHRISTMAS is REALLY bad!
They will not even say THE WORD – It’s HAPPY-HOLIDAYS, inst(e)ad,
For the term-for-instance (in Japanese) – for X-mas, means “TO SUFFER,”
And, I mean, WHO WANTS THAT? (pause) (’cause) from-suffering-we-want-“a-buffer!”
Yet! Suffering’s appropriate, I think, on-that-particular-day,
For – it was – when The Blessed Virgin conceived, in a meek and lowly way,
And she MUST have suffered – at least somewhat – to have her lovely child,
But, AFTERWARDS! There-must-have-been-such-JOY! I hope folks just went wild,
To celebrate! THE COMING – The coming of – a wonderful friend,
Who was here to declare – that we need-not fear – and that THIS-isn’t-The-End!
That – WHEN YOU DIE, or appear to die, it’s not really cessation;
It’s just: TEMPORARY release-and-relief – from all this trepidation!
So! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! and – TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT:
Christmas is coming – Relax! and SHINE YOUR LIGHT! 🙂 – Yeah!
