The Real Grinch

Well I’m 59 years old and I’ve never seen the Grinch we sing about – but there is a Grinch that we sure have to deal with these days.  His initials are PC and his name is political correctness – and this Grinch tries to steal Christmas as well.  He’s described in this poem……

  • Was the days before Christmas when all through the land    Not a Christian was praying, or taking a stand                                                               See the PC police had taken away, the reason for Christmas, no one can say

The children were told by their schools not to sing                                                       about shepherds, and angels, and wise men and things                                                     It might hurt their feelings the teachers would say                                                         Dec. 25th is just another holiday                                                                               Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa                                                                      in hopes to sell books by Al Franken and Jane Fonda                                                     As Target was hanging their trees upside down                                                                At Lowes the word Christmas is not to be found                                                                at K Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears                                                                You won’t hear the word Christmas it won’t touch your ears                                       Inclusive, Sensitive, Diversity – are the words they use to intimidate me                      Now ACLU, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen                                                                           On Kennedy, On Rather, it’s a national trend                                                                    to the top of the Senate there arose such a clatter                                                            to eliminate Jesus from all public matters                                                                        And we spoke not a word, as they slapped at our faith                                                     forbidden to speak of salvation and trace                                                                        The true gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded                                               the reason for the season, stopped before it started                                                         So as you celebrate winter break under your dream tree                                           sipping your starbucks now listen to me                                                                   Choose your words carefully, choose what you say                                                    shout Merry CHRISTmas, not happy holiday!

Don’t let the PC Grinch steal your Christmas friends – Merry CHRISTmas to all!
