Twsas the month before Christmas...

 
 
 
 
 
 
*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*The "politically correct 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, Di-ver-si-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!*
