Mistletoe And Christmas

                                     Mistletoe and Christmas go hand in hand

The mistletoe and its beautiful cherries

        Christmas carols and bells, bright stars and pine trees

With light snowfall can create a wonderland.


What a spectacle of lights and divine beauty

The whole world celebrates awesomely

The birthday of Jesus Christ born in Africa

What a shock for the entire Diaspora!


Baby Jesus was different, that’s why

From the crèche they wanted to sacrify and crucify

Him, their goal was to kill Him like a goat

Which they did, but He returned. It’s time to gloat.


The Messiah can be a subject of controversies

Deceptions, propaganda, polemics and inconsistencies

Oh! This is Noël, let’s rejoice and enjoy the feasts

At least and at last in this joyous season, let’s live in peace.
