The Weary World

The hippie-looking guy and his knocked-up girlfriend
wanted free stuff.

What do I look like? Obama?

Figures their type would show up here,
no cash, no plastic, just big eyes and oooh, can we stay here?

I called the cops.

This country used to BE something.
Now, why bother getting married, why not drop some brats anyway?

He said his name was "Joe." Ha!

And "Mary." Smith, no doubt. Get outta here, will ya?
Free room! Must think they're God's own special pair or something.

Christ in a sidecar.

So anyway, the cops told me they found 'em in the petting zoo--
they musta broke in, all bedded down with the cows 'n' goats 'n' shit.

Pet THIS, motherfuckers.

Hey look, the cop came back to shake my hand.
He said they'd been joined by some hinky Arab-looking fucks.

Right now they're searching the barns and hay for bombs.

I don't believe in abortion, but mark my words,
that kid's got no chance, when it comes, raised by those two.

Yep, the little bastard'll be nothing but trouble.

Probably be a vagrant, no girlfriend if ya catch my drift,
shooting his mouth off. It's all part of the war on good Christians like us.

For Karin's Christmas challenge at Real Toads. She asked that we use two words from a carol or Christmas song. My title comes from a line in "O Holy Night": 

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine o night
O night divine

This is so perfect- a mix of lines that cracked me up, and broke my heart. I don't think we need to worry about the Anti-Christ any more--we have met him and he is us. When did everyone become so freaking mean?

I guess this is about the same way as he was received last time... (there is a reason he won't come back)... and I wonder if anyone has really understood the scripts... (maybe you have to be an atheist to understand the meaning).

Agree with Hedge--too true--your tone is perfect, and the jokes and parallels also. I hope the photo had something to do with getting you there. Thanks, Shay. k.

Who better to be the author of a biblical tale for this age than you? This is so on point, one doesn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Shay, this is sacrilege and we Christians sing it every day. Let me amend that, I don't now. But, there was a time. This should be read in church along with the wisemen scene.

Times have, and are, changing. Fast.

Bomb the shit out of them. Build a wall. Ban them. God bless America.

you are brilliant.

Susie Clevenger said...

You've written it harshly, but hey that is the mindset these days. Mary and Joseph wouldn't have fared well with the "self righteous."

Marian said...

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

We re-crucify Him every time we hate. Fantastic!

Ostensible Truth said...

ha! a most brilliant satire, though unfortunately a genuine internal monologue pumping through some...
