Dark Christmas – Child

not even a photo album?

Some interesting prompts over at Mindscapes  Thought I would do something a little different on the Christmas themes.

mindescapes Christmas Challenge 2017


A child they say, to save the world

So noble great and true

But there are  things I often wonder

And here are but a few


He must have had grandparents

But they do not get a mention

No way would they not be involved

They do so love attention


And what of names when he was young

When he’d not done works or healed the blind

Was he always just called Jesus

Or perhaps nicknames not so kind?


Did the miracles start early

Did his parents ever gloat?

did he go through the terrible two’s?

and when they bathed him did he float?


What were his toys, did he read books?

Was he any good at sports?

Did he always wear a robe or was

He rather fond of shorts


Did he have a pet, was he kind to dogs

And at what age did he walk

Was he quite an advanced baby

And how early did he talk?


You’d think someone might remember

If he was such a big deal

Pity that there aren’t records

As much more they would reveal
