Mary

Sad Mary has had another miscarriage
Joseph cannot console her
She lights yet another candle
To her merciful god
Asking for a child

Conceived purely
Sprung out of hope and love
Little Jesus is a miracle
The little boy
Treated like a god

He grows up
Not touching the ground
He walks on water
Says the half-crazed mother
Nobody disputes it

At Cana, the wedding party
Runs out of wine
At his mother’s urging
The boy turns water into wine
It’s a miracle, cries mad Mary

Now Jesus loved mad Mary
And for her he was ready to die
She sat at the foot of the cross
Sobbing
Mad Mary lost another boy
