I Pray On Christmas All Our Problems Gonna Be Worked Out

As Mr. MoSop started up the engine and the two of us slowly drove away from the hospital we sunk into a bone-tired and soul-weary silence. I turned on the radio just in time to hear an excited radio personality announcing that “this next song has become a new ‘listener favorite’ here!”.
