The Real Story of Christmas

I. When was Jesus born?
A. Popular myth puts his birth on December 25th in the year 1 C.E.

B. The New Testament gives no date or year for Jesus’ birth. The earliest gospel – St. Mark’s, written about 65 CE – begins with the baptism of an adult Jesus. This suggests that the earliest Christians lacked interest in or knowledge of Jesus’ birthdate.

I am tired of people gleaming at me and ‘Wishing me a Merry Christmas’
I am tired of being asked ‘THIGUKUU IHA (where is the Christmas?)
Like it’s a thing that one acquires
When in actual sense
They want money
To drink themselves silly
So buy unnecessary items
Ballons, lights, trees

I am tired of the songs,
Meaningless, junguish, odieroish songs
Songs of snow, fathers and reinders
The last time I checked
There has never been Fucking snow
In Africa or Asia
Apart from on Mt. Kenya
Mt. Kilimanjaro
Himalayas, Tibet
and some few mountains.

Why do we Africans,
Kenyans in this case ape
Ape everything and everyone
that has the slightest hint
of white, of europeaness
The fake tweng( All NTV news anchors)
The fake dressing
And now
The last time I checked my history
Jesus was never born during Winter
The so called ‘Christians’ are
Either very ignorant
Or highly perverted in their thinking

Check your history
Check your facts
Check the new testament
Oh heathen day worshipers!
Praising Roman pagans

Read your bibles
From cover to cover
Show me the verse
Show me the quote
Show me the epistle, the gospel according
Show me

Tell me its an excuse to over indulge
Overindulge on anything and everything
Food, women, beer, name it
Tell me its an excuse
Only then
Will I understand your actions
Your unquestioning loyalty
To the spirit of giving
The spirit of noticing the beggar on the street
Who has always said
Nipeee Siringiiii!!!!!!!
On Moi Avenue next to Standard bank
Screaming her lungs out from morning to evening
You only notice her on 25th December
And happily drop some coins on her metal plate
She doesn’t even smile at you

I find you worse than a Blasphemer!!
I’ll sing like ‘The Israel Vibrations’
…….dem blasphemers
Dem Babylonians no know de most high
Having a form of Godliness on the outside.
But they are full of wickedness on the inside.
Say them can fool some people sometimes.
But they can’t fool Jah people in this time.
You watch them, them blasphemers.
Falling angels, them hypnotize you.
