NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – On this Christmas Day, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell muses on the state of our world and the holiday with his annual Christmas poem from Rockefeller Center.


You're stupid, you're ugly, you're a moron, you smell.

Think of these words, what story does it tell.


Harsh words they divide us, they push us apart.

This might be the time to seek a fresh start.


Think compassion and empathy and do unto others.

When you disagree, treat your adversaries as if they're your brothers.


Gaze at this tree, take a breath, decompress.

It's like the world's gone mad, it's hard not to stress.


It's lights bright and cheery, the tree seems to glow.

Show kindness and caring, let your true colors show.


It's a symbol of Christmas, of giving, of joy.

Capture the feeling of a young girl or boy.


Treasure this time, hug your guy or your lady.

At Rock Center, Peter Haskell, WCBS Newsradio 880.
