Say It "Merry Christmas" This Time: A Poem
I’m not what you’d call a religious dude
not publicly defending any noble cause
but at times getting in this satiric mood
commenting on some silly human flaws.
So, if “Happy Hanukkah” is sounding right
and Ramadan is dignified as a special day
well, I am not really here to protest or fight
but why Christmas is called happy holiday?
Is it to justify non-Christian business making big buck
profiting from sales on the festivity with no name
or is it to allow every non-religious schmuck
to forget differences and make us same.
Whatever the whole case may really be
it doesn’t piss me off -- not one bit
it just amuses the dude like me
as I’ve got no hairs to split.
But, to say the least it’s strange
how an old tradition loses its name
as if Christians really wanted that change
making out of it just another profitable game.
