On the Magi: Farcical journey Bishop Graham Kings January 6, 2016 Poetry Editor’s note: Over the next week, in celebration of Epiphany, we will be publishing a series of poems on the Magi by Bishop Graham Kings, originally included in Andrew Wheeler’s Desire of Nations: The Magi, their Journey and the Child (2015). Advertisement Farcical Journey Persians not Arabs Farsi not Arabic, Magi not Kings: worship not rule. Crazy and farcical, leaving two rivers, to follow a star, to worship a King: a journey afar. Leaving behind family and kin, like Abram of old, unlike the King: outside his line. Bishop Graham Kings’s other posts may be found here.
