Daily Prompt: Festivus for the Rest of Us

If I were king
I surely would decree
A holiday on my birthdate and
The next two weeks or three

We would start each day in reflection
Give thanks for the lives that we have
And honour each of our families
Expressing our love and respect

Next some festivity and fun
With food and sweets and wine
A must-have for the occasion
Dark chocolate cake so divine

Kindness must also be shown
To the poor and the desolated
Bring comfort to those in the streets
With simple gestures and words

But more than the merry-making
Every one should take away
Rekindled values of humanity
To live our lives each day.
