A Quarter

Can you hear?

When you’re shopping for all that gear

Santa out on the corner

Asking for a quarter


But why should you stop

You’ve really got to shop!

I’ll tell you why

You should modify.


There is a little boy

who won’t be filled with joy

When he finds on Christmas morning

Another toy less year spent yearning


She waits for the sign of sunlight

Praying this year just might

Be the one she finds Santa’s come

And can forget she lives in the slums


With Christmas near

Take some time to spread cheer,

It doesn’t take much

For a child’s life to be touched
