Underage and Pregnant: A Nativity

  Underage and Pregnant: A Nativity


Joseph turned and looked at Mary.

She glanced up at him, whimpered,

clasped her stomach. 

“Ow”, she whispered.

“What's wrong”, slurred Joseph.

“Nothing.” Mary looked down,

back at the unopened letter.


The DNA test results laid within.

Joseph knew the baby wasn’t his

but insisted on making sure.

Mary also remained puzzled,

they were virgins.

Just two young jews,

with a lot of responsibility.

A very interesting viewpoint, valid enough. Why did Joseph 'slur' his speech? That is a loaded word to use. Is it not possible that Joseph was considerably older than Mary? The last line is quite tender.

Joseph certainly had a hard act to follow, poor bloke.

and as the saying goes.. this is how rumour came to be.
So was it artificial insemination then?
