“Follow my vision; follow the light!”
Bellowed the prophet on stage that night
I’d watched him climb from a pit of fire
And saw him float higher and higher
“Look at me; resist the sin!
Come! Follow me. Give in. Give in!”
The crowd around me looked on and cheered
The man on stage looked back and sneered
Those at the front didn’t stand a chance
Already hypnotised into a trance…
I think I was too, eyes starting to close…
“Now cast aside your unholy clothes!”
They stripped naked, one by one,
The nightmare now truly begun
My shirt was opened to the waist,
Enough, I decided; I needed space
To get away, to find somewhere to hide
So I fled the tent to the hills outside.


    1. Thanks, Sue, but the prophet I write about here is a completely different one to the one whom you refer! 🙂
      I’m pretty sure our blogs will last forever (I say as I’m quickly thinking of any post I may delete before forever comes!)
      And ooh, lovely! Enjoy your holiday – see you when you get back! 😀


    1. True, Elizabeth. And thanks. I like to refer to myself as a false poet. I write rhymes and groups of words that don’t rhyme, but I stop short of calling any of them poetry. I just like playing with words.


  1. Words well placed in your wordle. I like it. Well done, Tom.
    Incidentally, when I placed my blog on ‘Private’ it deleted some of my blog followings. Weird … ??? Anywho … I’ve followed you again.
    p.s. now, I’m really, really going to eat something. LOL

    1. Thanks, Isadora, I’m pleased you liked my placings! 🙂
      And thanks for following me again – I think the private setting resets things, but you’d think it would be the other way around really, wouldn’t you? Outside in rather than inside out…
      Did you get anything nice?
