come true

I heard them too clear

the way you do

when people begin ragging

all over you

he moved into the old mans house

knocked it about

tore down the ceilings

did all the things the old man

said he’d do but never did

bringing his outsider money to bear

& I wanted to argue

say it was not like that

I’d busted a gut get stuff done

place was a stinking mess

& then he’ll sell

make hisself a mint

move on to another town

& with that

they turned their backs

& did their best

to make their jibes

prophesies

come true
