The Fool - 0

By Nulty Lynch

Whatever happened to theTheFool

bindlestiff? Tramping

the country. The happy

hobo went away and is long

dead excepting half-remembered

vaudeville acts discussed over

early dinners in nursing homes.

Now we don’t even ride the

rails with tickets, let alone

hop into boxcars.

We don’t talk to strangers

and we don’t take the presents,

even simple flowers.

The man asking for help has

not lost his dog, as he told

the children. See, he’s right
