Christmas wish list

Just bring me.... 
A smile wrapped in tinsel 
my child in braces 
spreading joy at his gifts 
snow the night 
before Christmas 
and the morning of 
and then 53 degrees 
till Spring 
something in stockings 
to delight my senses 
something out of stockings 
to send them reeling 
love to all the loveless 
peace to all laden with war 
retribution to all 
who have lost 
loved ones to insanity 
the head of bin laden 
to dropkick and bury 
in the midst 
of a New York landfill 
with the rubble of all 
things useless 
and unwanted 
a president who 
"really!!" cares 
about anything but 
big business 
five minutes to hold 
talk to and kiss 
my dear departed Mom 
one hour of my childhood 
revisted through the magic 
of time travel just 
to feel the excitement 
of Christmas at dawn 
hope for all without any 
wrapped in warm blankets 
security and a job 
streets empty of homeless 
hearts empty of hate 
jails empty of killers 
all their DNA tested 
so that innocent are 
properly set free 
and guilty are 
executed as soon as 
results are delivered 
Puppies that are born 
housebroken and stay little 
three years and live to be 
50 like parrots 
Churches without abuse 
priests who love children 
but through God's eyes 
all the soldiers home 
by next Christmas 
Oh...please let it be 
no more children used 
as kinder in the fires 
of rage men build 
a return of the 
babe in Bethlehem 
Fully grown and ready 
to make straight 
the crooked hearts 
and destroy the evil 
that rules the world 
some shepherds to watch 
runaways and coax them home 
flocks of shivering 
teens with no where else to turn 
more dreamers and 
more time to wish 
with more wishes 
that come true 
just box it all up 
wrap it in newspapers 
that's all we had as kids 
to dress up presents 
funny pages were coveted 
for their colorful style 
and tie a bit of yarn around it 
cause this is such a yarn 
I am spinning 
but perhaps if it was woven 
tightly enough 
it might all still come together 
without unraveling 
and stay together 
warming the hearts 
of all men...maybe.... 
so if it does 
even after I am long gone 
put it under a tree 
perhaps a weeping willow 
and let the pandoras 
of the world 
all those 
wide eyed and curious 
children gather 
in giggling masses 
to open it 
ooohing and ahhing 
as they watch the 
magic of Christmas 
change the world in which 
they now often cower 
into the paradise they deserve 
see them dancing in garlands 
of flesh and ivory smiles 
around the tree 
to the music of love 
without fear 
Merry Christwish to you all 
and a hope filled New year...
