In Thy Dark Streets Shineth


Away in a meager manger
(his bald soft spot bumping
the rough wooden slop trough
some previous carpenter built)
allegedly a savior slept

As it turns out, he was only
a signpost, but savvy executives,
(recognizing potential profit)
hired billboard angels
to enlighten uncertain shepherds
about solitary stars
sleeping in the hay

The ad campaign succeeds,
even millennia later.
