Hobo Jesus & The Mad Hatter

thrown out
into the street
beaten to a pulp
they didn’t call the cops
in Old Orleans

let go
once or twice
by King Cake Law

the Mad Hatter
sings the blues
making deals
with black cats
in copper suits
robbing from Peter
to pay Paul

is that what this
has all come to?

slander campaigns
and random diseases

the artist
formally known

Emanon Yesac

John Jacob
Jingleheimer Schmidt

whatever the hell it was

I think I owe him
20 bucks
but he’s shit out of luck
because I gave it to
Hobo Jesus
that sleeps in the park

he needs it more
than we do

and someone
had to be crucified


well, fuck you, man
if the shoe fits
wear it
