Two Bums and God 

Two bums out in the rain tonight
across the street from church
keeping dry beneath a dumpster lid pulled 
backwards which
when they pulled it, shrieked! 
like the corporate slaughterhouse
of a sweet little pig.

The yellow neon church sign glows 
like a nightlight in the dark, the bums 
read it silently to themselves.  

There are endless ways 
      to Praise Him. 

"I hope to Christ that’s a two-way street," 
says one bum. 
"Me too!" says the other. 

They laugh at that Wisecrack, which warms 
them up, considerably.
