Mary had a little lamb,
her secret yet to show,
and everywhere that Mary went
her little lamb did grow.
The man she was betrothed to
wanted a way out
and when people saw her on the street,
they took a different route.
The life of Mary’s little lamb
was threatened from the start
but Mary trusted what the angel said
and treasured his words in her heart.
Her beloved did not leave her
even when they had to flee,
even when they had to sleep in mud
among livestock as refugees.
When Mary had her little lamb,
she shattered current Rule.
A wicked monarch’s power was
no match for her infant sans royal jewels.
But will the kingdom, power and glory
birthed that day in Mary’s lamb
be a match for those that tremble in
a cloudy-eyed, star-splanged land?
If you want to help Syrian refugees, this is one place to start.
