The End of the Road

He was quite charismatic
He referred to himself as “Father”
He offered all of us lost souls
The promise of utopia.
He painted an amazing picture
Of a journey to everlasting paradise
All we had to do was
Follow him
Unconditionally
He said, “Don’t be a chicken
And so we did follow him
We drank the Kool-Aid
Quite literally
To the end of the road

      That’s a good question. I suppose I could add a footnote to the post for the “youngsters.” 😏

    Now I have that song stuck in my head. 🙂 You know the one.

    I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
    There isn’t an ocean too deep
    A mountain so high it can keep me away

    I think I know who you wrote this one about and it is very good, I however will not touch anything, drink or otherwise, from him.
