Advent Apprehensions – a poem

Plastic machine guns

blossom in toy stores,

camouflage jackets

abound – and war movies.


The days may be bright

but the dark nights

fill with foreboding.


The Herods of the world

are nervous, and must

be placated.


Weep, Rachel,

for your children.

Joseph and Mary,

take flight

into Egypt.


We pray again

for the Daystar.

— Arthur Roberts, 1985
