The dead letter box

It was not about the wise men
or Bethlehem
or gifts of gold or old spice aftershave
who if anyone at all could save the most.

jesus was hijacked,
painted white
brought to the West and
‘Bob’s yer uncle’
the rest is history.
His story being lost along
the way.

In the Kingdom of the Sun,
the day will surely come
when there’s to be
a reckoning,
when accounts are put in order.
