Managing the Nativity

When the teen narrators

tell the story

we hear that the star has to be moved

so that it is over Bethlehem.

The wise men will notice,

because they are wise.

There is a danger that the shepherds,

watching for the prowl of wolves

will be downcast,

and miss the hosts above,

because they are not wise.

We hear of an innkeeper

who provided a stable

and laid on a manager.

The lad recognises that the laughter tells him

that he has misread the script

though not necessarily

that he has misspoke.
