Pilgrims

In the past people went on pilgrimage

to churches, holy wells, or healing pools.

Many odd pilgrimages continue,

but most people now make fake pilgrimages

through television, YouTube, media.

 

Businessmen make pilgrimages to hotels

where conventions supply a tech update,

advice on marketing propaganda,

changes in law, insurance policies.

 

Academics go on pilgrimage

to seminars for new job connections,

discuss books, lobby remote editors,

even meet potential lovers, spouses.

 

Me? My pilgrimage is to the back yard.
