PUSHING IT

PUSHING IT

 

We’ve heard of August/September

Being a Halloween to remember…

At least in stores

Who want to sell more,

Through timeliness dismembered!

Thanksgiving is barely mentioned,

Being Christian, not pagan convention…

But still are displayed,

In November anyway,

“Bell’s Spice” and turkey farm intentions.

Christmas sneaked up fast,

Before Halloween was passed…

More candy in rows

And holiday bows,

And pink tree iconoclasts.

LET’S GIVE IT BACK! :)

LET’S GIVE IT BACK! 🙂

 

A cultural battle ensued

When some folks no longer viewed…

Western Christianity

As the culture to be,

With Constantine’s influence imbued.

At the time of the burning Yule Log,

Pagan Druids were billed as top dog…

While Rome had all sorts

Of divine cohorts,

With many festivals looming out of the fog.

Why shouldn’t we give this “holiday” back to them,

It could not be called Christmas, then…

Some fertility rite

With debauchery all night,

If it would get rid of the anti-Christian phlegm.

But of course, that will never be,

Judging from past history…

The enemies of Christ

And the Jews, have their lights

To destroy things that they cannot see.

If someone can’t hoodwink a believer,

The next step is to openly deceive her…

Get the children to see

All things should be “P.C.”,

And pagans will convince more receivers.

Why should we follow a pagan emperor, anyway,

Emperor Constantine’s baptism was his dying day….

His Momma by her lights

Appointed tourist sites,

In The Holy Land that could help the Church pay.

Since December is for fertility,

True Christians have th’ability…

To chose a Day worth

His actual Birth,

To worship Him in humility.

I don’t suppose things will ever change,

Like the carols say, the world is still in chains…

The best we Believers can do

Is to stick with Whom is true,

And suffer for our allegiance to His Name.
