Holy Day, Fatman

by Linda Germain  
12/22/2007 / Christian Living

In tribute to a man so jolly
We deck the malls with green of Holly

Christmas now in zone of gray
New catch all phrase: "The Holiday"

A feel-sweet time for what it's worth
Mere nod to Love and Peace on earth

It's all about a short plump guy
And elves who toil and deer that fly

Displays of glitzy Ritz and shine
A time to party, wine and dine

And watch that play of Christmas ghosts
Or TV Grinch who stole the most

There's natural need to look for reason
Behind this flashy, red suit season

A homing thing we can't ignore
Searching on from store to store

Beneath the shallow joy and mirth
Found deep inside each one from birth

God made our fine tuned spirit heart
To seek true pattern's missing part

In silent streets of midnight clear
With open minds whose ears can hear

He would speak to each, his heir,
Though some may stumble unaware

Down detour roads entrenched in danger
The real path led to lowly manger

Where costly present wrapped for man
Redeemed, but on the three-day plan

From babe to man in thirty-three
The crowning touch on Christmas tree

He Died. He rose - our Rose - in fact is living
Love's perfect GIFT, He keeps on GIVING
