Merry Christmas! (the reason for the season)

The month 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, checks and credit                                     
Pushing folks down
to the floor just 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 & 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.                                         
Inclusive, sensitive,                                            
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!
