Listen to poem:
HARK, a majestic consequence substantiates itself, bribes throughout a period that steads neath overcast skies, Such being the case, should time regress and place innovates, blinded would Three ascertain where the Bethlehem Star be, Example be the calamity of Christmas nowadays, wherein, one percent of Christianity, yet the whole of Japan celebrates, Most faithful followers, same as all other faith followers, seemingly, all celebrate Christmas in any way, shape, form and or place, Twas, not the climate that animates the Christmas ambiance, though numerous may dissent amidst such a sentiment, Though the might of money be the missing roots neath a Christmas tree, burrowed and disguised amongst enwrapped gifts, As fragmented over time, we all exit down a slippery slope, reasoned delusions immersed in grand splendor and not twain millennium, Though the quantities may have dwindled and the believer faith momentarily fluctuates midst tenuous fingers of grace embrace, Nonetheless, our fabled times a-changing, toward a materialistic realm motivates giving and receiving, as we trade in our faith. 2019 December 25 BEYOND THE NICETIES OF CHRISTMAS Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Bobbie Burns

Enjoyed this William. It's hard to imagine just how big Christmas is...especially because it's based on lies. Jesus not born December 25, wise men did not go to the manger, were not there at his birth, on and on, Santa replaces God rewards the good punishes the bad. On and on goes the lie and people love it...so much for being truth seekers! It's fun for the kids!!!
