If Jesus was born today
It would be in a Travelodge room
With a food bank voucher and charity shop clothes.
A street pastor, caring for the broken,
would be first there picking up the pieces.
Later, with an I-Pad connection,
A local blogger,
a “facebook” friend,
and a website designer
would arrive with a camera
the whole scene shot and uploaded to “Your Tube”
as prayers are held to make it go “viral”.
Then in a blur to escape “social media”
His parents would catch a Euro-star train
Until his facebook page wasn’t liked anymore
And the video was eventually forgotten.
