Cold War

How many angles does the phrase cold cover?
It could be a cold night or even the Cold War
A conflict not only fought between two countries 
But between the lower and the upper class

In winter we feel hungrier day by day
The penniless wish for a Merry Christmas
But to no dismay
And their hopes never do last

Watch the one percent
Gift their children bountiful presents
But our destitute souls only wish for something, be it not even heaven-sent
Just like the winter, hearts of the rich, are frozen and always resent the underprivileged

I wish on this next December 25th
When I pray to God
He would send Santa Claus
To make the poor feel lesser at odds...
