masthead image - an open book


(2 stories)

You see them out every day
The followers and their leaders
Some are indulgent of their pet
Letting them use their baby talk
Some are more controlling
Stopping, starting and sniffing
Most just keep follower in tow
Waggle tailed out for a walk


The rain cascaded through the roof
Was this the last Amen
It didn’t matter how much they prayed
The (lead-ers) had struck again.
