the hypnotist stands on the stage
the audience is rapt
the hypnotized stay in their seats
among the others, trapped.
.
the hypnotist says, "bow your heads"
as he recites some chants
some fail to grasp the message
others fall into his trance
.
the hypnotist says, "sing along"
some will and some will not
for it takes a certain person
for this fervor to be caught
.
the hypnotist says, 'pay me"
and they pass around a tray
some simply look down at their shoes
some give their cash away
.
the hypnotist releases them
into the street, they lurch
but they'll be back next sunday
and they'll march into his church
