“Mary of Nazareth”

Two thousand years past
there was Nazareth and Damascus
and many other cities
€πchanting
like tinsel and sham
the least of all in history

six miles south below Jerusalem
over ßethlehem we flew
like a marathon trail to my heart
skimming the hills
a few houses scattered around
tucked down inside a valley

I left behind the ninety-nine
to find rest with 0ne £OV€
distinctly on my mind

two thousand years past
there were Milky Ways and Jupiters
and many other spaces
€πchanting
like tinsel and sham
the least of all in heavenly

six miles south below Jerusalem
over ßethlehem we flew
like a marathon trail to my heart
skimming the hills
a few houses scattered around
tucked down inside a valley

he left behind the ninety-nine
to find £OV€ with one world
constantly on his mind
