Cult leader

Cult Leader.

That guy with Zombie eyes
With love in his disguise
He sucks out life, and minds he does destroy
He says he's the Messiah
And utters words of fire
And promises the seven shades of joy.

A lot of folk be on a search
They know that something lurks
Within the beauty that be there within
And this man he has the power
They think he'll help them flower
And yet the leaders mind be filled with sin.

And when he's hooked them in
With all his righteous din
About God’s wrath and the weight of every sin
He has filled their minds with fear
And made their heads unclear
As they listen to the evil in his din

And families break down
As the kids head out of town
And mums and dads they stay in the commune
Maybe he’ll turn real crazy
His mind might turn real hazy
As another cult it sends folk to their doom

    Yes, this is really good, the true zombies of this world are these jerks that steal people's souls.Like the guy with all the wives that got put in prison a while back. He is still controlling those poor robots even from prison!!! Zombies for sure.

    This is so true Andrea. There have been so many of these people over the years. I would never let another control my mind. My father tried it when I was young, but I grew up with my own mind and have always been self reliant...Thank your for your comments my friend....Peter

    first of all, how cool that you got to go to Soho. I only got to ever hear of it in songs from Simon and Garfunkel or Kinks. Now let me read this poem!!

    Hi Andrea, I worked in Soho for four years and at nights I used to love to go to the Heaven and hell coffee bar, and the two eyes coffee bar. Tommy Steele, and a lot of other singers gained their fame from these places. I wasn't sure when you wrote your poem whether there was a Soho in the US...peter

    When it comes to zombie eyes you and I are on the same page. My zombie poem expressed the same message just veiled. Good job.
