April 28, 2014 #NaPoWriMo14: A dark sonnet

In a deep sleep I dreamed
some souls return to Africa
after human death –
but it was neither heaven
nor hell – no, not at all.
A wealthy preacher I knew
was there in a sharkskin suit,
giving directions to the flock,
but others were being tortured:
a probe poking into their brains –
denying them deliverance –
to suppress their truth
and punish their association
with truth-seekers in the life here-before.
