‘Twas the night before Christmas; the Christians all hunkered In basements of buildings they’d armored and bunkered. They huddled in silence; they huddled in fear, With thoughts that the atheists soon would draw near The War Against Christmas had started on Fox— Just a couple of fools on the idiot-box Who were looking for noise to give ratings a boost— But lately, those chickens have come home to roost: Believers are frightened; they’re panicked; they’re scared, And not one among them will go unprepared; They’ve heard that the atheists roam, Christmas night, So Christians stay hidden, and safe out of sight.
