Christmas "Politically correct?"


    Twas  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, 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



 Christ is  The Reason  for the Christ-mas  Season!
