Haiku #3: The Boys of Bethlehem

Christmas is about

Fancy trees and children’s toys

Not dead baby boys


[See More Haiku at HaikuFromHell website.]

I know that this is kind of a morbid question, but why do we not include the killing of the baby boys in the Christmas Pageant? Wouldn’t it be more exciting and dramatic to include all parts of Matthew and Luke instead of just the good parts? Just a thought. See my blog about this here.

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem

Matthew 2:16
