What I’d Like For Christmas, 1970
by Ted Berrigan


Black brothers to get happy
The Puerto Ricans to say hello 
The old folks to take it easy & 
as it comes 
The United States to get straight 
Power to butt out 
Money to fuck off 
Business with honor 
Religion 
& Art 
Love 
A home 
A typewriter 
A GUN.
