So this is the Solstice,
And what have we done,
We, the civilization of Humanity,
The only one there is,
Our Earth, her Moon, our biosphere,
Once more around the Sun: another year over, a new one just begun.
In this dark universe, we have brought our lights, our lonely lights,
Gentler than all others, peering through the night,
To our Moon, we may owe our life, the Enlightenment of Humanity, the snows of temperate climate, which helped.
Merry Christmas, Roman Saturnials, Celtic Yule,
Our northern ancestors celebrated that birth of the year, ever since they created edible plants, and took care of them,
Well before their words could come to us.
I hope you have fun,
The far and the dear one, the old and the young,
A very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year,
Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear,
To use your minds as much as,
This civilization needs to keep on going,
Minimizing pain, maximixing love.
And so this is Christmas,
Verily We are the Anointed Ones.
For weak and for strong, for rich poor alike
The world is so wrong, yet so right.
No doubt a heavy, confusing, exhilarating,
Cross for us to bear,
No need to go the gym,
Exercising our minds is plenty.
And so happy Christmas,
For black and for white, for yellow and red ones,
Let’s stop all the fighting, which brought nothing good
And start those Jihads we really need,
Smartly discarding those we don’t.
A Happy New Year, let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear, to assume what we are,
Anointed to pursue,
Thought in the universe.
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one, the old and the young,
A very Merry Christmas, a happy new year, let’s hope it’s a good one.
Those wars we don’t need are over, if you want it,
New wars have begun, which we really need,
Just to save our biosphere, our sanity, our civilization.
It’s not a question of never more wars over the horizon,
It’s a question of how we fight, and why.
Humanity never rests,
Thinking is a debate,
Debate is combat,
Humanity means ever more dashing,
Incomprehensible, yet enlightening thoughts,
Where gods never threaded before,
Made obvious for all to see.
Humanity means ever more science, and fiction,
Humanity means going to Mars,
And well beyond, Plus Oultre, as Charles V put it,
Humanity means going thermonuclear,
Humanity means never aging,
Humanity means ever anew,
Thinking through everything.
Humanity means never any return of the same,
Humanity means there is no horizon,
But for the next one,
And the one after that.
Humanity means love for us shall lead us,
Enjoy your Earth and her Moon, ever rotating around their Sun.
Life has been an ever-changing journey,
Ever since it started to evolve, more than four billion years ago,
Ever more potent,
The greatest change is upon us now,
Will blossom across the galaxy,
They have to, just to survive,
And we are in charge,
So happy Solstice,
We are going to need ever more happiness,
To conquer all,
Starting with ourselves.
