~ Prophet ~

Just an unwanted child
Future street corner prophet
They thought him a fool
With a hole in his pocket
Knowing nothing of love
Much less how to find it
It was just another lie
That promises were laced with
And every fall back to earth
Spawned more hatred inside him
As if painting his world
With a charlatans eye
