Miles in the Dark

Alone in the world

Naysayers abound

“You are wrong” they say

“You false prophet!”

They spit and curse at you.

“How DARE you question our god!!”

If they only knew

That their god was false

Like the last one was.

Gotta keep moving.

To stay in this town is death.

New gods every 4 years and nothing gets better…

Yet no one cares.

“We got our god” they say

“And they do no wrong

For their shit is golden

And smells of strawberries.”

They are starving, filthy, poor



Must keep going…

Just a few more miles to go.

Maybe there will be sanity in the next town…
