manger in your soul?

I’m your only friend
I’m not your only friend
But i’m a little glowing friend
But really i’m not actually your friend
But i am

[Little Jesus] in the outlet by the light switch
Who watches over you
Make a little [manger] in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say i’m the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little [manger] in your soul

I have a secret to tell
From my electrical well
It’s a simple message and i’m leaving out the whistles and bells
So the room must listen to me
Filibuster vigilantly
My name is [six-inch Jesus] one note* spelled l-i-t-e
My story’s infinite
Like the longines symphonette it doesn’t rest

[Half-foot Jesus] in the outlet by the light switch
Who watches over you
Make a little [manger] in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say i’m the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little [manger] in your soul

(Ever so sorry, TMBG.)

(Thanks, Chucky P.. How’d you know we were stumbling around in the dark?)

So anyway, this is one of the gifts in the package from Chuck Pahlaniuk that arrived sometime this weekend while I was in Maryland. Need the full story? It’s at https://coloringthevoid.com/2003/12/fireplace/. Other goodies included my power badger (Mark got a power mole), a box of chocolates, a temporary tattoo, a custom-beaded “Denny” necklace, and of course a personal letter, which I will not reprint because it’s… personal. Okay, really I just don’t feel like typing the whole thing. Mark’s package arrived around the same time mine did. The thing about his necklace is that he’ll be wearing it in Hawaii this week. So I guess that makes him the winner.
