Mushroom: A Tale

mount locust property april 27

Across the field

a mushroom lay

a man picked it up

and ate it merrily

 

His mind began to wander

hoping to become part of a heavenly place

he picked up his step

tripping on his shoe lace

 

Looking up from the ground

the devil he saw

coming toward him with beady eyes

and a chainsaw

 

Terrified he shouted

why are you coming after me

it was a heavenly mushroom

in Heaven I am supposed to be

 

The devil kept coming closer

his dark suit in plain site

grasping the edge of a tree

he looked like in flight

 

The devil spoke

as he came into range

speaking softly

with this exchange

 

Young man

you are a fool

you have stepped into 

a pasture cesspool

 

When you come down 

off of your high 

I am a farmer 

rescuing you before nigh

 

The man slept

waken to be safe again

never will eat another mushroom

grateful that God saved him

  1. I would be more grateful to the farmer than the God, but that’s just me. Wonderful Lt. Pierce. I saw it all unravel before me like I was there. Great job. 😀
