Black Christmas

Here comes Thief-ie
breaking down the door
snatching Christmas thing-ies
taking food from girls and boys
stealing from the poor
New Hope Church is their name
They plan on having Christmas
just the same

The New Hope congregation
is a forgiving lot they hope and
pray some day you will change
start living life the New Hope way
And if you do they couldn't ask for
a better Christmas gift from you

– Gerald A. McBreen, Pacific Poet Laureate
