    I’ve been thinking
    about the innkeeper
    actually all of those
    in Bethlehem who

    have taken a bad rap
    over two millennia for
    not making room
    as if no vacancy

    is some sort of sin
    it was after all
    Jesus being born
    did they not know

    did they not see
    than angel choir
    the way the animals
    all laid down

    as though posing
    for a nativity scene
    is it that hard to notice
    when Jesus shows up?

    that last question
    is rhetorical —- right?

      Rhetorical questions can also be dangerous.
