It Can’t Be Fun To Be A Prophet 2014

It Can’t Be Fun To Be A Prophet

 

It can’t be fun to be a prophet;

With no vanity, no pride in seeing

What nobody else is seeing.

He can shout it –

Not a soul believes it.

Suffering

To know inside an inner eye

That things are going under,

For he never sees good fortune.

Cataclysmic devastations,

Ruin, upheavals

And disaster.

No, it can’t be fun

To be someone

That everyone thinks mad.

 

It Can’t Be Fun To Be A Prophet 4.24.20014
