CHRISTMAS: SIMILAR TUNE, DIFFERENT RHYME

Devoted to the millions of street-children and underage workers who might have heard the word ‘Christmas’ but cannot experience it..
Let’s pray the Hope of Christmas prevails and the smile spreads..

Merry Christmas to all 🙂

Dashing through the streets
Pushed by the forced speed

Day or night, we need to go
Summer or winter, we flow

Surviving odds all the way
Persisting for that good day

When life will be lit bright
Oh so great it will be a sight

A good day for every night
A good night to sing it right

Bells do not jingle, yet we say
Jingle bells jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Yet we say thinking of that day

Still no Christmas carol
No music of season as well
When we will also be well
To feel it, to dance, to regale

Jingle bells jingle bells yes we say
True bells do not jingle yet our way
But we do not have choice to fail
O Santa, we’ll have our own fairy tale

Jingle bells jingle bells
Jingle all the way yes I say
O Santa, but tell us, at least,
When you’ll come our way

Street-children: UNICEF says as high as 100 million of them quoting some estimates

Under-age workers – children in child labour: ILO (International Labour Organization) puts them at 168 million with 85 million of them working in hazardous conditions
