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
He said, “Don’t be a chicken”
And so we did follow him
We drank the Kool-Aid
To the end of the road
