Playmobil Nativity Scene

The three wise men are lined up
on the TV unit next to a wooden red bus.
The camel is chatting to the passengers
while baby Jesus is sitting in the back
of a yellow dump truck with a banana skin.
The manger is in four parts and smells
of Shreddies, Rice Pops, Cornflakes, everything.
Who knows where Mary and Joseph are,
the donkey’s drowning in the bath.
