The Holidays are upon us with consumerism and show,
While old-veterans like me are kind of waiting for snow.
It didn’t snow in Southeast Asia and I didn’t get cold,
A big old snow-storm would have felt as special as gold.
We’re into the 100th year of this truce,
That’s special and I wish it could be wrapped all up in Spruce.
In 1914 British and German soldiers on that special day,
Stopped fighting on the western front - just to pray.
The concept caught-on and I wish it could last,
But today’s wars are continuous and seem never in the past.
I pray the tradition continues all over the world,
And bullets plus bombs are no longer hurled!
