WHERE HAVE THEY PUT THE BABY?

WHERE HAVE THEY PUT THE BABY?

Please hear me out

Listen to my quiet shout

I looked in the old pen

But I found no manger

Just the sad face of the last uneaten sheep

I looked in the local church

But I found no swaddling clothes

Just the church folk

Strutting arrogantly in their gaudy attires

I looked in their new songs

But I found no heavenly melodies

Just the noise blaring at the wild parties

I looked all around

I found no real joy

Just the shameless self gratification done in the dark

So I ask

Where have they put Mary’s baby?

He should be in our hearts

Where we can find Him this season

  1. I decided to do something I have thought of for a long time this Christmas, I choose to remember the man called Joseph and to dedicate the season to all faithful fathers. http://inkontheheart.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/moments-lost-a-tribute-to-joseph/
