Merry Christmas, oops Season’s Greetings I can say,
Is there any sanity left in this world of darkness and pain,
Where’s the peace joy happiness and sound of blissful play,
Explain to me how with “political correctness” we stand to gain?
O Christmas tree, there I go again it’s my Holiday Tree,
If you did this with another subject they’d call you silly or worse,
I am no longer sure what to celebrate might as well Glorify Me,
Gifts Commercialism Partying take more money from our Purse?
Dashing through the snow, not with Global Warming today,
Oh don’t forget to take a Flu Shot with mercury every year,
Who goes caroling anymore soon that will be put a bay,
How truly good is it for us and why do they instill with fear.
So call me a Fanatic, say that I am a Bigot and Unjust,
Mock Christianity call it a myth of organized fantasy and dreams,
Over what? Goodness kindness purity and faith these things are a must,
Relentless crying there is no God society ripping wrenching at the seems.
Whose Children will say Enough is Enough, Peace please be Still,
Do we care, will we listen or continue down this path of dangers,
We have wallowed in our SIN long enough it is time for Jesus’s will,
Christmas is about Goodwill to Family Friends Enemies even Strangers.
