Joseph Doesn’t Get His Due

Joseph doesn’t get his due,
and he never will —
the forgotten father
but that’s understandable;
you can’t very well
relegate mother to the
dust bin of history;
after all, it’s mom.
Dad’s do and don’t;
Joseph did; apparently,
Jesus knew and
Mary never complained.
There is something to
be said for not drawing
attention to one’s self —
Joseph as Gary Cooper
who once was a very
quiet actor in Hollywood.
