Advent Through Poetry Day FIVE (Why?)

Out in the fields watching over the sheep

Calm, ordinary, normal, to survive. 

Knowing that the day you set foot in town

You’ll hear the lies

Realize that you’re kind is despised

Why?

Suddenly a host appears above

Wild, different, brilliant, insane. 

Telling you that the day you set foot in town

You’ll meet the one of eternal reign

Realize you’re the first to hear this news proclaimed

Why?

Walk down the street in the city today

Calm, ordinary, normal- to our lives.  

Knowing that those we fail to see

Are failing to Survive- 

Do we still believe the lies?

Why?
