patron saint of vagabonds

30 Dec

saint christopher used to walk out of his way after school,
he wanted to smoke cigarettes and impersonate WWF wrestlers with us.
we got busted smoking a joint in his mom’s bathroom.
most of us had to meet with guidance counselors.
chris had to go to private school where
he learned latin and shakespeare.
he was smart way before private school,
but he asked us if we thought he was arrogant for now knowing latin.
we told him,
“hell no mother fucker. it’s our dumb ass problem. you got nothing to explain.”
we admired him for being so smart, but even more for being so god damn humble.

    I bet he could pick words with a Latin origin out of a Shakespeare sonnet too.
