“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” -Dennis Prager

Cool moisture, creeping up skin;

Bubbling rage, a fire inside.

Christmas angels, a glorious glow;

Looks of despise: a devil’s glare.

Giving and gifts, a season merry;

Vengeance and anger is what’s in bide.

Jolly fat man, ho ho ho’s;

A snaring young man, ha ha ha’s.

Pulling at presents, a Christmas stocking;

Tugging at bars, no give, no lies.
