Poem About Children Who Don't Have Much

My granddaughter who was about eight at the time asked me to help write a Christmas poem for a school project. I came up with this. Hope you like it.

Oh Little Child


Published: November 2010

Oh, little child in Africa
do you know it's Christmas time?
Soon the star of Bethlehem will shine.

Oh, little child in Africa
I hope you're feeling fine.
If you do not have a present, please, have mine.

Oh, little child in Africa
I hope your heart is free.
If you want to love someone, love me.

And as my daddy drinks his beer
and my mummy drinks her wine
and dear old Santa's ate the last mince pie,
you have so little, I have so much,
it makes me wonder, why?
