My wish for gifts is now long dead.
It is for 'sight' I wish instead.
This year I wish we all could 'see'
Beyond our god Economy.
I wish that everyone would pause
To study this guy Santa Claus.
We'd 'see' Economy the same.
She differs only in her name.
From Santa we expect a gift
We hope will give our life a lift.
Economy we want to give
A job to us so we can live.
We stare at her immobilized
What we can do unrealized.
At such a cost there is no doubt
This 'santa' we should do without.
If we could 'see' we don't survive
To keep Economy alive,
We'd see each other as we should
And give the gift of common good.
