I Have a Friend in Jesus

 “I have a friend in Jesus”
says the kid sporting a
second-hand suit and
disinfectant eyes.

With a righteous buzz he
greets strangers,
distributes pamphlets,
spreads his word,
immune to their
rejection and
avoidance.

How comforting his faith must be - 
to swim the
medicinal vapors
of certainty,

rather than gather
apples in the
orchard of
not knowing.
