The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for May 2015


were there christ impersonators
in palestine
wearing out-of-date robes and
old-fashioned hair
     handing out stale
loaves and fishes

were there moses look-alikes in egypt
casting their staffs about and walking
through the waters

buddha-buskers on the sub-continent
looking for a free meal to skip

did they book conventions and birthday parties
did little kids think they were real
did grown-ups wonder if they could really
make a living like that
