In Praise of Materialism at Christmas

In Praise of Materialism at Christmas December 27, 2017

Grey gnostic spirits pledge to me “Good Thoughts”
at Christmas. They piously denounce
materialism and what is bought, 
say, “Gifts and presents are not worth an ounce
compared to the purity of spirit.”
But I say there’s nothing specially fine
about that. Satan is very near it,
being himself a spirit. No, I dine
on delicious meats at Christmas, savor
smell of tree and sights of light, sing bright songs,
present presents honoring a Savior
really present in flesh, and who belongs
to my family as surely as you.
So let’s eat and sing and give gifts! Woohoo!
