THE ATTACK ON CHRISTMAS

Post by Rita Biesemans » Thu Dec 13, 2018 12:24 pm

THE ATTACK ON CHRISTMAS

After 2000 years a new Herod
tries to kill baby Jesus again
he doesn’t just sit there on his tod
he arrogantly comes out of his den

No more “Merry Christmas”
only “enjoy”, “Happy Holidays”
no more allowed to witness
no more allowed to praise

An old man, they call “Santa”
supersedes the Holiness of “The Child”
dressed in a fluffy red “manta”
he domineers and Jesus is reviled

No more public “Mangers” allowed
only most fancy “Holiday” trees
in front of which heads are bowed
asking the tree the world to appease

Oh, my Jesus, please don’t delay
Your coming “on the clouds”
so that all of us this Christmas day
may testify to the crowds.
