Christmas Poem: Christmas King

I saw You today

Resting peacefully

In a ceramic cradle.

 

Your mother’s porcelain eyes

Tearfully gazed

Towards Your own.

She was surrounded

By doting shepherds

And kneeling kings.

 

Your human father,

With a clay crook in his hand

Stood over You,

Like a stone sentinel,

Whilst a ceramic cherub

Joyfully sang a muted song.

 

You looked perfect;

And the holiness

Of Heaven hailed You

As the Coming King,

Whilst the worldliness

Of the store

Displayed You

On a shelf,

Above boxes

Of

Christmas

Cigarettes.
