An Atheist Boy at Christmas

I’m an atheist boy at Christmas
but nobody seems to care;

everyone else is having fun
while I’m left alone to stare

into the void of nothingness
that awaits me after death; yes,

I’m just a lonely atheist boy;
to Nature I am just a toy,

a plaything to Eternity,
a trifle to be tossed away
after the world is through with me.

So sing your carols and ride in your sleighs
you happy Christians, whilst I

an atheist boy at Christmastime,
sit alone and drink and cry.
