the creek is rising….

the creek is rising

the brown bag prophet
was warming his hands
christmas eve
by a trash barrel
in overlook park
he said
ever christmas
that poor fellow
over there
has the same wish
that the lies
that got him here
would be discovered
and his life
would magically
be as it was
even with
the magic
of christmas
and
words of truth
such things
will not
occur
for life’s lies
become embedded
in the minds of fools
and fools
become
part of
christmas future
