I just played your Christmas song,
first your peace version
recorded with Yoko in Montreal,
then the unofficial one with snowy landscapes,
fire lit hearths,
and one soldier, grey faced, alone,
walking in a war zone...
So this is Christmas 2015:
old and new wars right here at home,
and children dying in the deranged streets.
And nights silent in snowdrifts
under a single star,
bullets, and promises broken in Bethlehem.
