Painful Tears For Haiti At Noël

The nonstop negative news or publicities on Haiti

Hurt tremendously and disturbingly

The relentless or constant bashings of all Haitians

Twinge and twist my heart like cancer patients

On their death beds, who are resigned, hopeless

Penniless, helpless, and spiritless.

 

Haiti needs a mega break from all the powerful parasites

That are still exploiting our precious resources at countless sites

While concomitantly exploring and impoverishing our peasants

Our innocent siblings who perilously work for crumbs and cents.

 

It is time that all truths are spoken or be told

It is time that we unearth, unfurl or unfold

All vile plots so the world can witness the premeditated lies.

 

Papa Noël is a well designed invention in disguise

At Christmas time, the hurts are excruciating

And the misery is objectionable and nauseating.
