Fisher-Price: My First Cult Deprogrammer
Doomsday pays my allowance.
The millennium, a guru reneged.
I do unscrambling on indecisives.
Extirpation, all in a belief’s work.
Gurus reneged on the millennium—
discipleship never goes as planned.
All this work, extirpating a belief. I
play with Hello Kitty, followers’ heads.
Religion never goes as planned,
the wayward covered in magazines.
With head followers, the hell-kit.
Combustion leads to messiahs,
magazines covering the wayward.
I unscramble indecisives, those afraid
messiahs combust as leads. Reti-
cence, the doom allowed per day.
