The cult bought the old Rickert place
and moved in down the road.
They cut down the scrub oak and all
the snowghost sandplums,
brought crawling earth movers with crocodile feet
smashed things flat and built three religion boxes.
Then they planted
They died last summer.
I doubt they’re doing any better
