If I recall

Your title was, and still is
"The Bright and Morning Star"

And if

the carol is correct
"...the Morning Stars together
proclaimed the holy birth."


With what irony, did you sing?
(Bass, at the back, on the left
I'm sure)

Announcing HIS birth.
In whose Name -- enough atrocities
will be and are perpetuated,

To sate even you?


HIS birth - according to some,
will end all the struggle,
So you can stop.

Even Lucifer

I should think (perhaps even especially)
would get weary of darkness.

What thoughts,
Passed through the glowing mind
of Dark -- Light bearer -- as you sang?

Morning Star
