PC Christmas In Starbucks Cup

Starbucks is taking a lot of flack
For Christmas symbols on its coffee cups lack
Christmas is the mother load for retail
Means the difference between profit or a chain that fails
Yet in the PC World of diversity to maintain
“Merry Christmas” is about as rare as Gobi dessert rain
A red cup with not a Christmas or even the bland Happy Holidays words
Someone must have been asleep in Seattle as Starbucks joined the PC herd
At least Dunkin Donuts has some Christmas Spirit with a cup that says “Joy”
With a bonus their coffee is cheaper so you and your wallet will enjoy
At least the spirit of Scrooge or the Grinch have not completely quashed the Christmas dream
Enjoying coffee in a Starbucks while listening to Christmas carols in a steady stream
