In a shroud of trees
Stand a lone worshiper
Mumbling words to a set of hills
To him they stand so tall
Which lends credence to his belief
That they are the abode of his gods
To whom he must pray
For food and security
That was a beginning

In his dim mind
He sees trees flattened by rain
Some uprooted by gale force winds
Yet these hills stand tall as they were
From time immemorial
There must be the palace of gods
Wherefore their solid stance
Against all the onslaught of nature
The sacred hills seen from his childhood days
Around which he played hide and seek as a lonely kid
Fantasizing to be with tiny demons
Who teach him mean tricks galore

He offers blood from the sacrificial lamb
The entrails of a pig's belly
Urine of a virgin
Toenails of his supposed enemies
A promise to bring in more offerings too;
When he attains his goals
That is to cast a spell of doom

Later ..much later
He comes more devoted
Offering human parts
Freshly mauled and parceled to present
To the gods in the sacred hills
His prayer now is for a crown
But also for a cure for ailments secret
That is until people started the rumors

Haunted by his demons
The cries of his victims
Long dead and buried in secret tombs
Come visiting day and night
Nightmares of a tortured soul
Triggered by guilty conscience
Never fail to show up
So the trips multiply
To the sacred hills
Can he lie to his gods
Yes he can
Indeed he does lie
Because they are fake deities
The effects are just
Figments of his imagination
The residents of those hills being termites
Perhaps his gods erm.
