The Three Gifts

A bag of gold is just the thing
To give the Once and Future King –
And meantime, keep his humble parents fed.

And then it only just makes sense
To give a sack of frankincense
To one who’ll be the Great High Priest, it’s said.

And finally, a jar of myrrh;
Embalmment for The Prophet?  Sure –
In Israel, they always end up dead.
