Choose Your Hypnotist


A willing subject is the key

Believing all will be

What is spoken to me

Tickling my itching ears

Stirring my righteous anger

Calling me to do what

I would never dream of doing

had this spell not been cast

on me…

so willingly

This is my second poem for the prompt Spell. As I watch some of what is going on with the Senate hearings on the January 6th riots at the Capital, I had to think about why this happened. The hypnotist chooses willing subjects to do his bidding, but the subjects usually choose who they want for their hypnotist! This is not only true in politics.

  1. WOW…POWERFUL! πŸ₯°πŸ’ͺ🏼😊 Dwight my friend, I never thought about your narrative in such a way as the subjects usually choosing to be spellbound by who they want for their hypnotist! Spot on! 🎯 What a great complementary analogy to your topic, and also, so very true! 😲πŸ˜₯😞 Thanks for your thought-provoking influence and delivery. πŸ™πŸΌ

  2. This is absolutely brilliant. I love the use of analogy here and agree that it’s sad when it happens. Thank you so much for writing again to the prompt, Dwight ❀️❀️

  3. Powerfully done Dwight and so true. Love that painting & interestingly when I saw it, my eyes got heavy and it had that trance effect.. I kid you not. How is that for the perfect paining chosen for your well written poem. Maybe a protective device to get me through the hearings IDK.
