A Christmas Message- Just in Case

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Heaven must be filled with idiots,

cause there's more down here than you can shake a stick at,

and to a lessor extend I'm surrounded by ass-holes,

so what few 'normal' people are left,

couldn't fill a small European country let alone Heaven.


I'm wondering what will be worse,

do sinners have more fun,

or is our religious leanings just there to hedge all bets,

collect on short term insurance,

just in case those pearly gates have barbed wire on top.


Tolerance is a a gift

and I'm all for allowing people to make there own mistakes

and learn a lesson or two, no matter the collateral damage,

but from where I stand the collateral damage

best describes the state the world is in.


The simplicity of existence and experiencing all there is in a lifetime,

should be a pleasurable and positive experience surely,

yet the misery we create for ourselves,

seems more profound than the simplicity of experience and learning,

whether we're going to Heaven or a dingy public housing block.


Human beings invest in the pain and misery of the periphery,

rather than in what's important and has substance,

and in doing that we make the simple joys of life arduous

and veiled in the doubts and misgivings of so-called intellect.


As they say 'why can't we all just get along?'

smile and be nice to people, even though they're an ass-hole,

hell, they can't help it ... it's not easy being a moron,

and even harder trying to be morally responsible,

when you're a seething, gluttonous hedonist.


Whatever your leaning, up or down,

life has a way of bringing us together if we let it,

and Christmas, regardless of the personal meaning,

is an opportunity to take an ass-hole home,

cook them a good meal and say 'I forgive you' with a Christian smile.


Cause when it gets down to it,

God doesn't give a damn about all the religious articulation

posturing and ceremony, just what's in our heart.

It's that simple,

happiness being the gift of sharing and giving,

regardless of all the crap that divides us.


Whoever you are, idiot, ass-hole, sinner, angel, or heaven forbid, normal

I wish you love always in this crazy pursuit of dreams we call life.

And be good to one another...
