The Seeker

A Meta-Cognitive Journal About Writing… Plus Other Stuff

Abandoned Poems pt.3

The PAD prompt last November 14 was “Write a follow poem.”  I happened to be on a Northwestern fan bus on the way to the Wildcats’ epic upset of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, that morning and was far too occupied with talking to the folks around me and sipping Jameson to permit much work on poetry, so this one was scratched out real quick and never revisited.  I put some margin notes in to remind myself to find some rhymes amongst the name of holy texts.

Funny how my disdain for organized religion came out on my way to a prominent Catholic university.

A Brief Lesson in Concision
The Bible
The Koran
The Talmud
Mein Kampf
Dianetics
all can be reduced
to this:
Follow.

The option is yours.
