How the “Left” Stole Christmas

T’was the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand. Why 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
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
Not Happy Holiday!
