BC:AD

                                       By U.A. Fanthrope

            This was the moment when Before

            Turned into After, and the future’s

Uninvented timekeepers presented arms.

            This was the moment when nothing

               Happened. Only dull peace

            Sprawled boringly over the earth.

This was the moment when even energetic Romans

            could find nothing better to do

than counting heads in remote provinces.

            And this was the moment

when a few farm workers and three

members of an obscure Persian sect

walked haphazard by starlight straight

            into the Kingdom of Heaven.
