Holiday Spirit

My idea of Holiday Spirit
Does not involve lavish decorations.
These are demonstrations
Of excess wealth, without merit.

My idea of Holiday Spirit
Does not involve presents sent
To either a lady or a gent,
No matter how ornate.

Holiday Spirit faces the blight
Of poverty and paints a bright
Spot on the soul, leaving behind
Hearts amazed that Man is kind.

Helping those less fortunate
Is my idea of Holiday Spirit.
