JACK4DAW - THE GODBOTHERER
This story is rated 3 stars (2 ratings).
"The end of the World is nigh!"
With his sandwich board
slung front and back
“Repent while you still have the chance!"
Folks called him the reverend Jack,
Known all around
As a bit of a pest,
Jack searched every crowd for an ear,
Relentless was he,
In pursuit of his quest
Though he stopped
Now and then for a beer
One day at a bus stop
Jack sallied a shout.
"Time is scarce will you listen to me?!"
When a frivolous voice from the crowd
“have we time for a nice cup of tea?”
Alas for poor Jack,
Time did run out...
As he drank from a bottle of meth
he fell down an uncovered manhole
And his sandwich board
Choked him to death.
