They want us to purchase,
From Thanksgiving Day on.
They want us all to forgo,
Any Advent introspection,
Contrary to consumption.
They want us to worship:
Idols of silver and of gold;
Druidic trees and mistletoe;
Department store santas;
Busy merchandising elves;
Snowflakes on coffee cups.

The real war on Christmas,
Has already been fought,
And won by corporations,
While we were lusting for,
This year's must-have-it -
Not on some theological,
Battlefield's front-line, but,
By very willing surrender,
Back on the home-front.

Holly defeated holy...

Or maybe not?
