Daddy, what did you do during the Great Christmas War?

First a Walmart clerk wished me 'Happy Holidays' in a somewhat rote manner,
and I did not speak out—
Because she was just a wage drone doing her job.
Then I overheard some people talking about Kwanzaa,
and I did not speak out—
Because who gives a fuck about Kwanzaa.
Then someone said Happy Hanukkah to me,
but I only nodded and said it back to them—
Even though I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—
and I said "So, how was your Christmas?"
