Geen ask yourself dat veel jonge mensen, onder wie dieven, helers, hoeren, pooiers en een enkele drugsdealer, aan zijn lippen hangen. Ze noemen hem 'de profeet'.

Na lang wachten met de volgelingen in de gelagkamer van het voormalige logement van Tante Marie, zijn ze er getuige van dat een jonge vrouw met wapperende haren binnenstormt en met overslaande stem schreeuwt: 'De profeet is dood.'
