    A bright star on a lonely night
    A husband & wife in flight
    In the family way, & no room in the inn
    No sympathy for her, or the shape she was in.
    So in a manger where cattle was fed
    Was this poor woman forced to put her child’s head.
    Meanwhile the star continued to burn bright
    Leading those searching for a savior, towards the light.
    Gifts were brought in reverence of his birth
    As angels proclaimed his coming throughout the earth.
    The honor paid to him because he is the King
    Born to die for our sins, that is why the angels sing.
    But today we have forgotten what the day really means
    Now it’s all about money, not the newborn King
    It’s all about a fat white guy, in a red suit
    Not about a savior born to die just for you.
    Its about buy me this, and what am I gonna get?
    It’s about how many days are left, and is Santa coming yet?
    But let’s take the time & remember the reason
    What was done for us, and the meaning behind the season.

    A Glow

    Bishop you hit the nail on the head.
    You have given me a glow to see
    that there are still some that Luvs Him
    and know He is not dead.

    Peace My Brother

    wow-nothging else to say but definately the truth and most
    definately a tight piece....

    It’s all about a fat white guy, in a red suit
    Not about a savior born to die just for you.
    Its about buy me this, and what am I gonna get?
    It’s about how many days are left, and is Santa coming yet?
    But let’s take the time & remember the reason
    What was done for us, and the meaning behind the season.
