said Joe, to Bethlehem, let's steal
my mule, a tool, to carry
if inn is out, i will, no doubt
arrange a manger, Mary
.
so on the beast, in grief, his wife
no saddle for a shielding
you bet your life, she felt some strife
yet rode his ass, unyielding
.
just as they thunk, there was no bunk
their plans were gravely tabled
their patience thin, they left the inn
and in a manger stabled
.
the donkey ride disturbed the bride
she screamed "i broke my water"
the child inside came forth and cried
and Joe yelled "its a daughter ! "
.
now Mary'd heard the prophecies
so that was hard to grapple
she asked Joe to look harder, please
for stem upon the apple
.
no stem adorns, said Joe, forlorn
she's female in her glory
next year, its sworn, a son was born
but that's a different story
