The unChristmas Card

I'm falling over folks in the holiday crunch,
Upset with my "Friends of the Wildlife" bunch.

Traditional cards are getting tattered and torn,
Seems someone forgot that a Christ child was born.

It's Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings,
Politically correct, say this bunch of weenies.

Of all the folks that make pooch and kitty art,
"The Humane Society" left out the Christmas part.

Though I joined their clubs and sent them a check,
Their idea of Christmas only makes me a wreck.

So I told them I'd prefer not belonging there,
Send your damn freebees to those who don't care.

And even tho Christmas cards were on my list,
I'm tired, I'm broke, I'm incensed, and I'm pissed.

Happy Christmas, Merry Christmas, only if I could,
This unChristmas card with intentions are good.

Taking the Christ out of Christmas doesn't work,
So forgive the animals, not my card, nor my quirk.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
