Mine: I Saw the Crowd the Other Day

I saw the crowd the other day
All packed in to the entryway,
And from the throng emerged a song:
"Hayasaka, come out again!"

Staring distraught through window frame,
Her peace betrayed by former fame,
Was torn inside as her fans cried,
"Hayasaka, come out again!"

I could not move them from their ward,
Looked on as Largo came onward,
With class about, to end the shout -
"Hayasaka, come out again!"

I don't know how it ended there,
The crowd had fled for God knows where,
No longer heard the fanboy's word -
"Hayasaka, come out again!"

But as I walked with weary tread,
She came right up to me and said
"I thank you here for staying near;
For now I won't come out again..."

Original: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christiandom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men."
