America the beautiful, home of the brave, One Nation under God, marked upon their graves, Our founding fathers built this land, “In God We Trust,” they made their stand. A nation built with strong convictions, Free from British Rule, “I Pledge Allegiance To The Flag,” Was said in all our schools. There was a time when we would pray, After each and every meal, Cite the Ten Commandments, Let The Master do His Will! “HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER, THAT THY DAYS BE LONG AND STRONG, LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS YE LOVE THYSELF,” Is sung within our songs. A New Light shines upon us, A Fire from down below, Satan is spreading his political views, Erasing all that we’ve come to know. The prayers that once were said in schools, Became “A Moment of Silence,” The paddling we received from the Principal’s rule, Has been replaced by murder and violence. “SPARE THE ROD AND SPOIL THE CHILD,” Is Exactly what we have done, Children running amuck and wild, Shooting parents with their guns. The Special Day we celebrate, each and every year, The day in which our Savior was born, filled with joy and cheer, Has become a day of infamy, a name we must not say, Merry Christmas has been replaced, by Happy Holidays…
