A court required parents
To amend their baby’s name.
He can’t be called Messiah
For to some, it might inflame.

Messiah’s age is seven months;
He lives in Tennessee.
I guess for savior wannabes,
It’s not the place to be.

The laws are different state to state,
So parents should take heed – 
If your state rejects Messiah,
It’s a miracle you’ll need.

    If you can be named Jesus, Messiah's not a stretch. But evidently some proclaim, it tends to make them kvetch. :) Peace,

    Based on facts, I gather...WOW! What an amazing read! Why didn't they call him Emmanuel? Messiah....I love the word and THE Messiah, but...well, thanks for this very interesting read, my dear. HUGS XOXOXOXO
