Poem: Runners

Words-Of-Wisdom-Which-Religion-Cares-The-Most-About-The-HomelessWhen you’re paranoid schizophrenic bi-polar crazy,

living by day at bus stops and sleeping at night nobody knows where,

getting normal folks to listen,

to pay attention

to the truth of your Truth,

is almost as hard as keeping yourself clean.


Property owners.

Cars, houses, purses, devices, wallets full of cards.

They’re in a frantic hurry to get nowhere.

No time for delusional rants. Achievers can’t spare

time or care for the profound pronouncements

emanating forth from a font of wisdom

who has nothing to show for his insights

except an open calendar and no place to go.
