Feast of the Circumcision of Christ

January first celebrated around the world why
People gathered hand in hand to sing Auld Lang syne
Vowing to never forgot old friends they cry
Here’s the hidden history that was lost with time

For a period of 400 hundred years of naivety
it was called before Nineteen sixty
The Circumcision of the Lord
and the Octave of the Nativity

Now named the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God,
The Octave Day of the Nativity of the Lord
Circumcision cut from the name and his rod
Genital mutilation by his ward

On December twenty fifth some call Christ Mass day
A nameless child a virgin birth
A savior put upon this earth
A deity to whom some still pray

On the eighth or octave day
A religious rite performed on him
A religious debt he has to pay
Resulting in the loss of his foreskin

So every year now billions pay
homage to this barbaric curse
And still they celebrate New years day
Church or state now which is worse

Now here’s my take on this new name
The Octave day for what it’s worth
Your voice is higher when your in pain
When mutilating a perfect birth
