Big shop for big plans
Felt like a stevedore getting
It all home and packed away
‘Tis the Season
And the faces in crowds are just plain weary
Conversation among neighbours superficial
What will you be doing?
Who will be coming?
Haven’t seen him since when?
STOP RIGHT THERE!
Haven’t seen Him since when.
A child views a child vulnerable
A half-lit manger and a starry sky
A wicked King who will be foiled
Some wise men in finery
Dropped to their knees
Much like the flock tenders
Who often stooped for a lambkin
And God comes as a wee One
Better than any super-hero re-make
Now’s that’s magic
Made marvelously free for the heart
“Be born in us today.”
