The Soothsayer

There was a soothsayer
who came to a small town
He said to never believe
the things he said

And he warned us all
not to run out of memory

The soothsayer arrived
when it first started to matter
He could laugh
He was always vernal

All his warnings took up
too much space

He stayed
and did not want to love
He preached silence
and could see everything

And we wanted to remember
but there wasn’t the space
