Poem to Share


Recommended Posts

I know some of you feel as strongly as I do about this topic, so I thought I'd share a poem with you...author unknown.

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 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

and 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!
