Blessed Be The Poor

Based on a true story. Thankfully, the shouting lady was told to take a hike.



Standing in line at the food bank,

faces all the same.

Smiling church folk pass out

potatoes, along with a good dose

of shame.




Across the street, the lady shouts,

the bullhorn reminds us

we’re scum. “JESUS SAVES!”

she shrieks, “I’M PROOF! I’M PROOF!”





At the end of the line, the

sweet old man smiles and

says “God Bless You!”

He hands you the tract, letting

you know, Hell is there for you too.
