Down In A Hole
by Michael S. Collins

There is a man in a hole in the high street. No one knows how he got there, how long he been there, or what he wants out of the situation.

He seems to sit down there, merely singing away the day, harassing passers-by, and living off scraps little children threw down to him.

Through rain and snow and shine, he mumbles strange prayers.

We never knew if he wanted out.

Then he died.

So we buried him.
