Christmas Manifesto
(12/24/2021)


Brother Bollocks
tires
of the obvious
attacks
upon the Yuletide

crass

commercial

devoid
of intended
spirituality

all too
easy

all too
trite

all usually
his

he wishes
now
to convert
the believers

to a more
authentic
messianic
message

more along
the Jewish
lines

the Christians
were
latecomers
after all

converts
from
the primary
cause

moving
away
from the heart
of unrealized
hope

from that
original
continual
potential
of salvation

but being
weak of faith
in a difficult
time

they needed
to put
a face

eventually
dates

upon such
deliverance

so they
chose
their Christ

creating
a new religion

a new hierarchy
of beliefs

new laws

new rules

new constraints

more hurdles
between our
souls
and The
Divine

Brother Bollocks
wishes
to invite them

to invite
them all

to a less
complicated
existence

to God
within
every grasp

to a true
silent night

there is
only one
