The Little Lord Jesus/Sacrificial Lamb

The Little Lord Jesus/Sacrificial Lamb
Written by Mel Brake

The little lord Jesus
asleep not on the hay 
but in the street 

Like Abraham the little
boy was sacrificed on 
the machine's high holy day
One day after the Winter Solstice

His family lived in a comfortable
home in Brooklyn NY but his father
took the subway to the highest
mountain near The Dakota in Central Park West

The 3 year old named was translated
to Kyrios Christos or the Lord in his father's tongue

He was placed on the high alter
at exactly 12 noon prime meridian

On the day in question
a mother's child was stolen from the womb
unlike the Star of Bethlehem 
Venus went backwards 
Virgo in opposition to the dark side of Pluto and Pisces
and the Uranus square or the Trickster

Like Christ his red blonde hair
was covered in blood
the measure of oil equivalent
30 pieces of gold

In three days times
the three wise men would have been
welcome to Gotham City but the Mayor
went golfing in Bermuda and the shops were out
of Gold  Frankenstein and Myrrh

But what of his message of peace and good will towards men
the sacrificed was paid
and the little Lord Jesus
lay not in the hay but
dead in NY city streets
