Season’s Beatings

Broken people clamoring for stuff
Hold more value in colorful plastic toys
Or the latest shiny electronic wonder
Than they do for each other
All under the graceful guise of
Celebrating the Savior’s birth

I wonder how many of them
Will take to heart His message
About loving their neighbor
More than they love themselves
While they wait in long lines, ready
To do battle with those neighbors


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
