There are stories told
That barely need telling
The child in a manger
The tired woman in the front of the bus
A hint, a phrase, a reference
All that is required to take you there
A witch with a twitchy nose
A stoic cop who always gets his man
From deep in time
Or yesterday
A con man with a heart of gold
A coach who does the right thing
You know it well
Or just enough
to nod along with the conversation
Just enough
To use the meme in the right place
Or just enough
To seem virtuous and above it
When you have to say
I don’t get it
