THE WORSHIPPERS

The worshippers queued every day

at the simple sign: "live this way."

No-one seemed to notice

that the sign had been turned around

and the majority were simply led astray.

 

One man, curious discovered the truth

and watched the simple sincere mistake

that all humans tend to make.

Thanks Andy - I sent a response but it got lost(!?) I meant to say that you're right about the brevity factor. I think I wanted to be a sort of voyeur and apply a bit of self righteous ego for the last lines.

This is great Ray, funny and sort of sobering; I reckon you could safely lose the last four lines without sacrificing the impact.

HI elP and thank you for picking this rather oddball offering , just wanted a simple idea to work - I'm glad you found a place for it in your mind's eye.

Clever without being cutesy..what a unique idea about the sign being turned in the wrong direction--expressed with great clarity.
