Chicago Street Preacher


Street preacher

server of the Word,

pamphlet whore, hand out

delivery boy,

fanatic of sidewalk vocals,

banjo strummer, seeker of coins,

crack cocaine and salvation within notes.

Camper on 47th from Ashland

to California promoting his

penniless life, gospel forever

Kingdom drifter here comes your reward.






Next life I will be a little higher up the pecking order.

No longer a dishwasher at the House of Pancakes

or Rickys All Day Grill, or Sunday night small dog thief.

I will evolve into the Prince of Bullfrogs.  Crickets dont bother me.

Swamp flies dont bother meI eat them.  Alligators I avoid.

I urinate on lily pads, mate across borders and continents at will.

Someone else from India can wash my dishes for me.

Forward all complaints to the Ministry of Religious Affairs.




Michael Lee Johnson, Itasca, Illinois and Canada
