A Modern Day Christmas Card

December 6, 2015

T”was two months before Christmas
When all through our land,

 
 
Not a Christian was praying
 
 
Nor taking a stand.
 
 
Why 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 25th is just a ” Holiday “.
 
 
 
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, cheques and  credit
 
 Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
 
 CD”s 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 Fran-ken & 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 Penny”s and Sears
You won”t  hear the word Christmas; it won”t touch your ears.
 
 Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-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 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, listen to me.
 
 
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
 
 
Shout “MERRY CHRISTMAS”,
not “Happy Holiday “!
 
 
 
Please, all Christians join together and
wish everyone you meet

 
 MERRY CHRISTMAS!
 
 
 
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
