The Greater Gospel – 07 – “Vagrant Prophecy”

Posted in The Greater Gospel at 9:23 pm by Matt

The trash heap prophet with his dumpster pulpit
Preaches from his alleyway sanctuary:
“Repent! The kingdom of God is at hand!
Repent and be saved from this wicked generation!”
And the passers-by look at him like a lunatic.

“Drunken hobo, what does he know.”
What if he knows the truth?
“Homeless beggar, living failure.”
What if he’s not so wrong?

Sheol breaks into the streets while they sleep in silken sheets.
What if they’re not so wrong?
They knew it all along.
