Christmas Poem for Strippers…Night before Christmas

    Twas the night before Christmas, and all through my city
    Ladies were stripping, and feeling so pretty.
    Their hair and makeup were done with such care,
    In hopes that a customer soon would be there.
    While the rest of the city were snug in their beds,
    Strippers were dancing on display instead.
    Mothers and Fathers home with their babies;
    Where was the love for these precious ladies?

    All of a sudden there arose such a clatter,
    Everyone turned to see what was the matter.
    Excited, the dancers jumped in a flash,
    The “Church ladies” had arrived with their special stash.
    Inside the bags were earrings and more
    The dancers knew what was in store.
    Unconditional love, grace, and acceptance
    Showered with hugs, much greater than presents.

    Why were these strangers so kind and so giving?
    Didn’t they see the life they were living?
    Greater than judgment, love trumps the game
    Isn’t that the reason the Son of God came?

    Now Mercedes, now Sasha, now Sugar, now Baby
    now Ginger, now Tasha, now Angel, now Candy
    You are precious, valued and you are a treasure;
    You are loved and your worth is far above measure.

    Trials of life won’t have the last word,
    Every tear, every prayer, all your anguish has been heard.
    His heart burns with passion, His eyes blaze with fire
    Driven by love, His scarred hands reach into the mire.
    No sin is that great, no darkness too much
    To keep Him away from extending His touch.

    Come close, listen and hear what we say.
    You have purpose and destiny that won’t go away.
    Objectified, sexualized and labeled beyond words
    We stand beside you and validate your worth.
    It’s an honor to know you, to serve you with love
    Knowing the same we received from above.

    God bless you tenderly and in His perfect time
    May you see the truth of His love divine.

    Merry Christmas!
