A Christmas Poem

'T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the town
Not a sign of Baby Jesus
Was anywhere to be foun

The people were all busy
With Christmas time chores
Like decorating, and baking,
and shopping in stores

No one sang "Away in a Manger
No crib for a bed"
Instead, they sang of Santa
Dressed-up in bright red

Mama watched Martha Stewart
Papa drank beer from a tap
As hour upon hour
The presents they'd wrap

When what from the T.V.
Did they suddenly hear
But an ad which told
Of a big sale at Sears

So away to the mall
They all flew like a flash
Buying things on credit
And others with cash

And, as they made their way home
From their trip to the mall
Did they think about Jesus
Oh, no... not at all

There were presents to wrap
And cookies to bake
How could they stop and remember
Who died for their sake

To just take time to pray
They had no time to stop
Because they needed more time
to "Shop til they dropped"

On Wal-mart....On K-mart
On Target....On Penney's
On Hallmark....On Zales
A quick lunch at Denny's

From the big stores downtown
To the stores at the mall
They would dash away, dash away
And visit them all

And up on the roof
There arose such a clatter
As grandpa hung Xmas lights
Up on his brand new step ladder

He hung lights that would flash
He hung lights that would twirl
Yet, he never once prayed to
The Light of Our World

So instead of being busy
Overworked and uptight
Let's put Christ back in Christmas
And make everything right

Merry Christmas Everyone !!!
