what a world this is
that thrives on fantasy
to experience the real.
 
Christmas no exception
a living fairy-tale
in sparkling lights
 
money is the religion
the appeal for it
climaxed at Christmas.
 
Christ entombed in tradition
the nativity a side-show
a second-rate fantasy.

Comment Thank you. Man thirsts for the truth: in fact, the truth of sensation. Christ identifies with truth; even Christ has to be fantasised in a long tradition of religious art to enable sensation. In these days of high-tech based entertainment, religious art, even a babe in a beautifully arranged manger scene, is relatively unglamourous. The fantasy of the nativity scene is by wordly standards of sensation distinctly second-rate, and thus down-graded is the truth experienced.
