A NEW OBITUARY FOR CHRISTMAS

After watching Scrooge this week, this is my own flashback on life:

A CHRISTMAS CAROL (Revisited)

The Ghost of Christmas past—

Has visited Ebenezer as a young boy;

Sweet Scrooge turned into mercenary Scrooge

No more filled with love, laughter and joy.

The Ghost of Christmas Present—

Seems to be with Scrooge—unpleased

Greed and pride have overwhelmed him

—His heart is terminally diseased.

The Ghost of Christmas KFuture—

Sadly knows old Scrooge all too well;

He ses himself for who he really is

—Not bound for heaven—– but hell.

But now Scrooge's soul is celebrating

No more grit and greed for him–

He's so filled with Christmas cheer

—He gives away all he can.

So heed these ancient ghostly specters

Listen to Christ's great Christmas Call

Let's all join with Scrooge and Tiny Tim

—And God Bless Us—one and all!
