JESUS’ BABY SHOWER

After knowing that Christ will be born What are your preparations You who have turned Sons Daughters Brothers Sisters Mothers Fathers Grandparents And still see baby Jesus as your saviour?

CHRISTMAS HORRORS

Youngsters are dreaming of Santa Their block of heavenly gifts in counter Elders are thinking of barter As delicious animals think of how discriminatory Jesus’ birth is So pray in chants For the slaughter of all machetes Just as saucepans pray For all fires to taste their heats So their bruised minds will quench themselves […]

BLEEDING THOUGHTS OF CHRISTMAS

I am shivering thinking of the fowls many will be slaughtering forgetting the children hunger will be slaughtering II I am crying thinking about boxing day of gifts and the many children pain will be boxing in a session of reminiscence where giving must reign III I am yearning for hearts which will open like […]
