A Cult for the Kids

Our kids are starting to ask questions about our cult 
They asked why they put the people underwater
I told them that’s what we do in our cult because our leader told us to
They nodded
They asked why a prayer sounded like everyone saying the same thing
I told them that’s what our cult leader told us to do
They asked why the thick books 
I told them because that’s our story
They asked why the bloody man
I told them because we need that
They asked who our cult leader was and I told them
An itinerant radical
