With mobile phone in hand
and contacts list at the ready
to share the good news
at the moment it happens—
come and be part
of the greatest Social Networking Revolution:
updating the Facebook status,
priming the Twitter Feed,
the text already written: “It’s a boy!”
It’s an old, old story
freshly edited for today’s world,
and you are part of the story tonight.
Upload your photos of your friends gathered here,
angels and shepherds for now.
Then break into song—
a flash mob right here—
with a message to share with the world:
“Peace on earth!
Goodwill to all.
Tidings of joy for today.
A candle of hope
to light up the dark
as we wait for a new Christmas Day.”
