I did not ditto him

He cried. I dittoed.
Stumbled and bumbled. Dittoed.
Studied and worked. Dittoed.
Tended to his ménage. Dittoed.
He was at prayers. Dittoed.
He folded his hands; I raised mine in supplication.
So I am at pyre today.
Burning. For not having dittoed.

    1. I guess that depends on whether remaining true to one's faith is worth dying for...

    2. I don't really think Kathy that he/she should have dittoed. But thank you so much for reading and sharing your views.

      textwall, I think that is what is happening all over the world. People dying for pursuing their faith ...thank you so much

  2. This was a good illustration of not just blindly following others, but following your faith. Regrettable ending, but ingenious.

  6. I agree with everyone above: cool use of ditto, all hell breaks loose from such a small variance, regrettable end. Not because he/she followed her faith but because of the end result of doing so.

    1. Yeah not because he/she followed his/her faith. But we all run short on patience. Anything different must be denounced hence regrettable end. Thank you for stopping by.

  7. We can't always ditto everything, sometimes we have to follow our spirits no matter where it leads.
