"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Rousting Jesus

Hey Chief, wake up. Can you stand up? Let's go.
Christ, what happened to your hands and feet,
and how'd you get those cuts around your head?
Let's have a look. Alright, I guess you'll live.
I don't know what you think you're doing here
but this is a nice, family neighborhood
and there's an ordinance about the park—
it's just for residents, and closed at night.
You need to gather all your stuff and leave.
If you're still here the next time I come through
I'll have to call it in. You don't want that.
Come on, let's go. There's nothing for you here.
