delayed irony…

an ancient discipline

the brown bag prophet
sitting across from
the municipal police department
was holding up a sign
with halos
on each edge
that
simply read
you’ll be sorry
i
pointed out to him
that might be viewed
as a threat
by
city officials
he said
oh
i didn’t mean it
that way
i was just
trying to point out
that at the rate
they’re killing black folks
white folks
won’t have any room
in heaven
when
and
if
they get
there
