Christmas Cheer

Bethlehem in Babylon
tinsel in the manger
a snow man sits on a front lawn
rooftop full of reindeer
"Santa baby" on the ipod
gluttony at the table
have we forgotten all that happened
in that dirty stable?

celebrate with lavish gifts
while charities get pennies
(that's if you have any)
"the more you buy the more you save"
I'm forgetting what HE gave
getting caught in a Christmas craze
in a land of plenty

This year in Bible Study we have been studying Babylon and the culture of excess that Daniel faced with integrity. Too bad it doesn't relate to our nation today ...
