This Holy Night

As the cold creeps its way through the city streets  
Street lights flicker and pop as night falls
The restless and homeless seek shelter  
As headlights illuminate tent cities
Shoppers fill their bags of greed
As snow covers the night world  
No time to help their fellow man
They must prepare for the celebration  
How many will die tonight?
While not a thought is given  
How can you feast at your table
When the unfortunate beg for scraps
They celebrate the birth of a king
While never giving thought to his teachings
Lock their doors and hearts
While their brothers and sisters die
This Holy Night
