Drabble Challenge #103

Prompt: dark

"Took your vacation on Earth this year?"

"Yep. Nice place to visit...but I wouldn't want to live there."

"Agreed. It's chaotic--and, what's with all those gods?"

"Well...remember, they come with no instructions. In their darkness, they readily line up behind the guy who claims to have a light. Of course, those creations can't rise above their makers; they never actually provide illumination--but simply strike off into the dark, and say 'Follow Me'.

Only Lucifer—'Bringer of the Light'—tried to shine it outward and get people to see for themselves...and look where THAT got him."
