Kevin Rottweiler


A.D.4000


the rain water came
it was an awful game
people living on the sidewalks
tent cities take their toll

a plastic doll floated along
an old man sang a sad song
the bread lines are getting longer
a lady spoke in tongues from a mud puddle
the world is in bad shape

'help us' a man shouted
only God can save us
a storefront minister yelled
so people suffered horribly
unemployment at 99%
work is hard to find
as they stand in bread lines

dogs roam the streets
seeking salty meat
rotten tennis shoes
stare from a garbage can

people so skinny
there is not enough food

so then Jesus came from a cloud
shouted outloud
'your sins are forgiven'
and He produced food
produced jobs and shelter

no longer would people suffer
they stood all day to greet
the miracle man from Heaven
