X-Mas War is Over

Hey Fox News

don't you think
it shows a less-than-total dedication

to preserving
the primacy of Christmas

over other religions
and especially over godlessness

if you only advocate for it
once a year?

"And remember

it's 'Merry Christmas'
not 'Happy Holidays'"

needs to become
a perpetually-scrolling
yellow-on-red-and-green marquee

even during the commercials

and a sign-on and sign-off
for all your anchors.

Lest your viewers forget.

(And maybe every so often
mention the color
of Santa too.

Couldn't hurt.)
