POEM (T'was the Month Before Christmas)

T'was the Month Before Christmas
T'was the month before Christmas
When all through the 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 teacher would say,
Because December 25th
Is just another "holiday".
Yet the shoppers were ready
With cash, check and credit,
Pushing folks down to the floor
"It's a big sale and I must get it!"
CD's from different artists
An Xbox and an Ipod,
Something was changing
Something quite odd.
Reatailers promoted anything nonreligious
As Target stores were hanging trees upside down,
At Lowe's the word Christmas
Was nowhere to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples
And JC Penney's and Sears,
You won't hear the word Christmas
It won't touch your ears.
Inclusive and sensitive
Are words that were used
To try and intimidate me.
Now Daschle, now Darden
Now Sharpton and Wolf Blitzen,
On Boxer, on Rather,
On Kerry and Clinton.
At the top of the Senate
There rose 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 "Holiday Tree",
Sipping your Starbucks
Listen to me....
Choose your words carefully
Choose what you say,
And not just Happy Holiday!
PLEASE... ALL Christians and believers, join together and wish everyone you meet --- "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"
For CHRIST is the reason, for the CHRIST -- mas season!
