The telegram

After Isaiah 9:6

The telegram comes

seven hundred years

or so early, a herald

and the promise

of the promise

of a child to be born / stop /

a son to be given / stop /

and more to come / stop /

carrying the government

upon his shoulder / stop /

and given four names / stop /

Wonderful Counselor / stop /

Mighty God / stop /

Everlasting Father / stop /

Prince of Peace / stop /.

He will be 

the promised one,

he will be

the promise.
