The H.I. area may be the place for this, maybe not. You may have seen it already but I just saw it. As poetry it's not that great but the message is loud and clear.Thought I would share. ...W Merry Christmas Twas, the months before Christmas. When all through our land Not a Christian was praying nor taking a stand. See, the Politically Correct 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, X BOX and I-pods Something was changing, something quite odd Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda As Target was hanging their trees upside down At Lowe's the word Christmas - was not to be found At K Mart and Staples at 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 To the top of the Senate, they rose such a clatter To eliminate Jesus, in all public matters And we spoke not a word, as they, slapped 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 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!
