Mice Lost In The Maze

It’s the latest craze

homeless men in a maze

of rumpled bunk beds

the mission dorm is full o’ bobbing heads

~

That one goes that way

this one goes this way

One goes one way

so another goes another way

~

Laborers & recovering addicts

young computer game fanatics

fat boy heart attacks

& incompacitated rack-backs

~

There’s a student or two

one has the flu

a motley crew of missionites

helps keep the mission going days & nights

~

That one goes that way

this one goes this way

One goes one way

so another goes another way

~

They’ll pray but they won’t vote

dreaming in a plastic dream boat

that won’t float forevermore

   but back on the chapel floor…

~

That one goes that way

this one goes this way

it’s the latest craze

   homeless men lost in the maze…
