DOORBELL

We sure are living in whacky times
We thought this president was the whackiest
But
Now a little bug is come upon us
Straight out of the Old Testament —-
Standing on the corner in his itchy robes
Ezekiel with his over-active thyroid and claustro-
phobia “I told you so,
you sinners!” It’s hard to
fathom what was in the minds of
these laboratories from whence it
escaped, or, was set loose? —-
One remembers the street corner prophets
of the 1960s holding signs The End Is Near —-
Where I grew up
Cucamonga there was a guy decked out
in medieval monk’s garb shouldering a huge
wooden cross, he never said a word,
this Jeremiah, kept his eyes down
as he trudged under the weight of his penance

Data card from cassette recording from Bobby Shew’s collection with Bobby’s notation of Blue Mitchell singing “Alfie,” probably his only vocal on record!
