Saturday Mix/ Double Take

They said, they will make me Prophet,
It will profit.

They said, I will be demigod,
It sounds good.

They said, being God, bears no loss,
To be a gloss.

But, they also said, have no flaws.
Stop being it,stray or take rest,
Exploit this life, then, they shall wrest.
It will profit, It sounds good, to be a gloss.


Entry for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Saturday Mix- Double Take.
Our homophone sets this week are:
Profit – money earned
prophet – seer
rest – stop working
wrest – take away

Also I came across Ovillejo Poem – while reading Whittled Words series of Brad Osborne.

So decided to write the Saturday Double take in Ovillejo Poem format.
