WWJD

What Would Jesus Do
What Would Jesus Say
If He knew his name was used
As it is used today.

I see the fishy stickers
On the backs of all the cars
That cut me off as they rush
To get to the happy hour bars.

I see the preachers on TV
As they yell for us to repent
But are the scandals they get into
Also heaven-sent?

I hear the children singing carols
As the holidays draw near
But it's bloody video games they want
To get at the end of the year.

Now I'm no angel either
No pure nor Christian child
But I do not understand
How this world got so defiled.

"What Would Jesus Do?"
Is the new marketing campaign
Used by people who know the world
Has gone absolutely insane.

But it is marketing and commercialism
That has ruined the celebration
Of the birth of a man that was to be
The hope of every nation.

I hope the Christians are wrong
I hope that God should not be feared;
I can't believe the zealots
Who claim that God has disappeared.

For He is all around us
And I hope He loves us all
For when our time is over
I would hate to see their Kingdom fall.

It is this time of year
When present buying takes its tolls
That they should instead think about Love
And what they can do to save their souls.

What Would Jesus Do
What Would Jesus Say
If He knew his name was used
As it is used today.
