YEAR-END GRACE

IF BY CHANCE YOU PASS BY HERE,
MAY YOU BE GRACED WITH CHRISTMAS CHEER;

AND IF YOU FEEL SOME YEAR-END GRACE
MAKE NOTE OF IT...LEAVE A TRACE...

FOR MANY MANY FOLKS ARE FEELING THE PAIN
OF WARFARE, DESPAIR, OF HUNGER AGAIN...

BAUBLES AND GLITTER AND DENIAL SO HUGE
COVER UP A 'SPINVERBOUNTIFUL' DELUGE

OF WORDS TO RATIONALIZE AND JUSTIFY DEATH.
IS IT NOT A WASTE OF BREATH?

TO THE VICTOR GOES THE SPOIL--
ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S A MATTER OF OIL...
