The War On Christmas used to be
A war without a casualty
A war of rhetoric and bile
Of right-wing spin and practiced guile
The War On Christmas never claimed
A victim—one who might be named—
This war was waged in bloodless fashion;
With little risk, but lots of passion!
The War On Christmas, at least this year,
Has claimed a life we all held dear
The headlines show for all to see—
They’ve killed the nation’s Christmas tree!
It’s time to call, at once, a truce,
And end this pointless loss of spruce.
