How can a faux news network find a story to tell,
that has no news value after their political fail?
What can they say that's not 'bout a mythical cliff,
a way to change the subject,
a propaganda shift?
Where can they find a story superficial and lame?
As always and as usual,
from the past, it came.
Like a pair of old pajamas so comfy when worn,
Fox looked for something comfortable to whine about & mourn.
Their outrage is perennial.
We have heard it all before.
Much ado about nothing,
no real story at its core.
It always baffles me as I've said several other times,
in several other Christmases
in several other rhymes.
Fox propagandists are masters of indignation & hype
Telling their viewers to fear "abominations"
of every sexual orientation type.
Even though they lost the election
they act as if they won-
but there WAS an election
and we know we're still not done!
The war on Christmas is so dusty,
it's tired and it's frayed,
like so many other stories on Fox,
it's hackneyed and cliched.
So worn and trite
the war on Christmas
has never stood the light.
But here it is again,
more shrill nonsense from the right.
They love to pretend their victims
persecuted by the rest of us
who don't live in their bubble
they love to make a fuss.
Gretchen might believe this stuff (she seems a little dim),
but I'm not sure about O'reilly
I think he knows it's all pretend.
He must do it for the ratings
more bombastic hyperbole
to agitate his viewers
and bemuse the left tike me.
But times they are a changing
as Dylan said long ago
and this made up war on Christmas
isn't going to help Bills show.
Christmas is everywhere
with exceptions far between & few.
We are inundated with Christmas
even Buddhist, Hindu, Jew.
There is no getting away from Christmas decorations.
They are everywhere that people meet.
We are saturated with Christmas
on every road and every street.
You can't avoid Christmas carols on radio and t.v.
You can't avoid the garland
on every Christmas tree.
But that's not enough for the Fox neanderthals,
it must be a war on Christmas,
if its not in the courthouse halls.
They don't understand The Constitution,
the separation of church & state.
They want to tell you what to believe
and fill you with their hate.
Which is odd to me and opposite of Christ's meaning
but that's how it is in Bizarro world
when nothings what it's seeming.
Right to work mean's no rights at work
Clear skies means more pollution.
When Republicans say “no child left behind”
it's Orwellian elocution.
Their numbers seem to be shrinking, though.
I think people are tired of the shrill
from Hannity, Fox and Friends,
and especially from Bill.
So seasons greetings to non-Christians and Merry Christmas to the rest.
May your days all be merry
and all of you be blessed.
