Remember how the subtitle for this blog is ‘Politics and Poetry’? And it’s basically all politics? Well, this is not really *good* poetry, but what is a girl to do when someone complains about the lack of Christmas Carols celebrating Saint Nicholas (that’s Santa Claus to you) punching Arius (the heretic) at the Council of Nicaea?
I admit, the scansion is less than perfect. It’s difficult to fit any really sound theology into lines of 5 or 7 syllables. (And unsound theology has similar numbers of syllables to good theology, as it turns out.) Also, technically, the bit about the Creed is ahistorical, because that happened *because* of Arius, not before him. But I suspect that anyone who cares enough to nitpick… is exactly the right audience for this.
(I promise I’ll get back to the Victorian State Election results soon.)
