The Inn keeper

All you had to do,

was help out those in need.

You said that there was no room for a pregnant woman.

They were two weary travelers,

and you turned them away.

You let them sleep out in the cold.

You said they could stay in the stable,

as if you were doing them a favor,

and because you don't,

look after your own animals,

you missed out on witnessing,

the most beautiful and wonderful event,

of all time.

    See what you mean, Forever. Could he have squeezed them in somewhere? Or asked someone else to give up a room?
    Yet maybe he was compassionate in at least offering a stable? - 'that's all I have, I'm afraid'
