It Hath Been Written

My boots are on fire
quoth the prophet
who was not wearing boots

Our boots are on fire
quoth the people
who were not wearing boots either.

My umbrella is on fire
quoth the rebel
who was wearing boots

The poet was confused
and spent a while
failing to turn it all into a parable
