in the saddle of a three legged horse

in the saddle of a three legged horse

would you trust the prophet
that offered you dreams
that kept you awake at night,
that whispered in your ears
of times that darkened days
like eclipses of the sun..?
that foretold your sadness
when joy was uppermost
in your happy life..?
that spoke of things
in languages made from
graffiti sprayed on walls
built to hold back your fears..?

would you trust the prophet
that showed you futures
erased from memories
that never came true..?
that felt like dust
on your fingertips
bruised from the slamming
of your fists upon fire
ramming futility upon pillows
made out of seashells
gathered from mountains
too distant from cities..?

would you call him prophet
if his prophecies came true
but left you bewildered
scared for the rest of your life
for existence upon this planet
you have chosen to call Goofy..?

But last time I checked I didn't live on the planet Goofy.
