Cult Leaders Receive Tribute Booty


cult leaders receive
their necessary
tribute booty

their adulation praise
in cult name sacred
to their new God

many cult leaders plan to take all
their followers valuables
such cult leaders

have masks bestowing love
blessings concern
token upon

followers but they never reveal
true hand when absconding
to new richer picking

locations abandoning present fleeced
shorn sheep who never naive realized
cult leaders felt no loyalty to their followers
