careful what you ask for…

witch doctor

a local reporter
hoping to score
a man-on-the-street interview
with homeless persons
stopped
the brown bag prophet
to ask
his opinion
of trump
fully expecting
no knowledge
of the candidate
the prophet
said
he’s had
a leave-of-absence
from
his senses
for
freedom
was not built
on
idle lies
but
upon the blood
of those
who
believed
that
no one man
king
or
whatever
has the right
to prescribe
to others
how
they should live
or
who is the criminal
before
the crime
and though
this house of cards
we call
a country
is not perfect
it is also
not
on fire
yet
though
he
strives
to
light
the match
