when a "prophet" dies

when a "prophet" dies,

finally having been spit out of

a population that seems to

grind their teeth

chattering

chattering

chattering,

when they don't have someone to

follow,

what do the minions do?

has there been a "prophet" in the making?

did s/he see the writing on the wall?

is there a secrecy already in the mix,

where said smaller circle round the "prophet"

has been given the heads up

regarding the health of the

"holy one?"

are there individuals who once

brainwashed, now gather whatever lil' bits of

rationality might be left inside them &

suddenly question what a cult of personality

might be

without

said personality?

and is anyone lucky enough to free themselves

from the web of lies, delusions &

complete

utter

idiocy,

during the interim,

no matter how slight,

when one "prophet" dies &

is replaced by

another?
