Twas the month before Christmas ...

'Twas the month before Christmas
When all through our land
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.

How the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - 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.
December 25this "just a holiday".

Yet the shoppers were readywith cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks to the floor to be the first to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X-box, an I-pod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken and Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas was nowhere to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penney's and Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive and sensitive
Di-ver-si-tyAre words that were used To intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzer
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 took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate "Winter Break" under your "Dream Tree"
Sipping your Starbucks,Please Listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, Choose what you say
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, Not Happy Holiday!
