2005- Christmas Poem

Christmas 2005

 

It was in December of two thousand five,

when the cynical right was well and alive

and the cult of the religious far right & insane

decided to steal Christmas for political gain.

 

The grinch, Bill O’Reilly, lied about the a.c.l.u..

Pat Robertson lied about me and you.

But WE know Christmas isn’t really something you steal,

Or... tear apart

because Christmas is something 

that lives in the heart. 

 

It isn’t about divisive wedge issues or hate or fear,

Christ was a liberal, or didn’t you hear?

WE celebrate Christmas, with our families we share,

but we don’t need to impose on the public square.

 

We love our Muslim brothers,

the Hindu’s and Jews,

We love the Buddhists,

And the atheists too. 

 

Christ was a peacemaker, not a war profiteer

He loved all the oppressed and even the queer.

 

So if you celebrate Christmas,

Here is wishing you well,

And everyone else too,

I think your all swell.

 

And Merry Christmas even to the nuts on the right,

that seem to miss the meaning of that Bethlehem night.

You shouldn’t use Christmas as a political tool,

 

But otherwise “Happy Holidays” and a Merry “Yule.”
