the cult

she went to college to earn her degree

but midway thru was convinced to run free 

some search from within for better results

landed her awkwardly inside a cult

now she's selling flowers to the cars at the light

her parents convinced that her choice wasn't right

like a zombie stone-faced tied to the cause

the mission requires she side-step the law

there must be a dozen or more deep inside

armed and well drilled they are ready to fight

the blockade does not even phase them a bit

they shout to the masses that they will never quit

two dozen people on one long lost trip

grappling for reason and feeling it slip

outgunned and outnumbered they were all apprehended

the planned revolution was thoroughly ended.
