TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS


 
 
 
TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS
author unknown  received by e-mail

 
Twas the month before Christmas when all through our land,
 Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand.
Why the PC 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 sayDecember 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.
At Targets they were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found
 

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
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
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet 

A MERRY CHRISTMAS 

Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!
