Fake TV preacher

shepherding lost sheep

who believe that he can stay the wolf

while the water rises deep

Drowning sheep believing

preacher will save their soul

while the wolf hunts them in daylight

swallowing them whole

This is the twenty-seventh poem of my personal 30-day poetry challenge to break away from the machine to think about things that don’t matter. I have no idea what I’m doing. – Jim
