Christmas Ideology in Current Times

'Twas the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand

You see the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - now called "winter holiday".
The children were told by the 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
CD's from Madonna, an X-Box an i-pod
They couldn't help it, they just had to get it

Retailers promoted Ramadan & Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Target was hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word "Christmas" was nowhere to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples & Penny's & Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

"Inclusive", "sensitive", "Di-vers-i-ty"
Are words that used to intimidate me.
Now, Daschle, now Darden, now Sharpton and Wolf Blitzer
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, please listen to me
Choose your words carefully, chose what you say
Shout "MERRY CHRISTMAS" not happy holiday.
