December 1st – Beginning the Celebration of Christ. Open Forum
Twas’ the First day of December
When all through Our land,
Many Christians were praying,
But not taking a Stand.
The PC Police, they had taken away,
the “reason for Christmas”; – and no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing,
About Shepherds, and Wise Men, and Angels and things.
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say,
for December 25th is just another “Holiday”.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit,
Shoving folks to the floor and trying to get it!
CD’s from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod,
Something was changing, and that something’s quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa,
In hopes to sell books by a: Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down,
At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears
You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
The Smithsonian chose our Christ covered in ants,
To perpetuate “art” with some taxpayer grants.
Our spirit diminished, tearful angst in the air,
Just a prayerful Christian so filled with dispair.
Inclusive, and sensitive, Di-vers-i-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter,
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they diminished our faith,
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true gift of Christmas dispatched and discarded,
The reason for season, stopped before It started.
So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’,
Or sipping your Starbucks, consider with me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say,
Then shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
If the person who hears just stares with a linger,
You can give em’ a wink, but I’ll give em the finger.
