Jesus Under The Rubble So Christmas Festivities Cancelled

Jesus Under The Rubble

Let us go to Beit Lehem &
See this thing that’s happening
The Lord has told us about.

Mary kissed the baby’s cheek,
Swaddling clothes she wrapped him in
& laid to rest his little head.

She crept out the room as
Joseph prepared for visitors
When

Unceasing screams
Unceasing screams –

All are shrouded
In phosphorus dust.

The magi & the shepherds
Had just arrived. Frantic.
With bare & hopeful hands

Digging,
Digging,
Through mangled stone.

They have to find him,
They have to find him

Or they will return
& in יהוה G-d’s name,
& report all the things
They heard & seen

A crying shame
A crying shame.

So –
Christmas is cancelled.
Your prayers are not.
