The balm that is spoken of, about the lord their god,

may not be quite as effective, as they would want.

The problem is the damned, dirty fly, found within the ointment.

He is dark and hairy, his name the Devil.

Their god is called creator, who brought forth the heavens and the earth.

He also concieved of his enemy, as it all did come to be.

The universe is of evolution, and however the Devil did start,

who could debate, that he came from their god's, spiritual genetic chain.

And as he concieved of his enemy, I would not trust in a kingdom,

that he would proclaim.

For the Lord of the flies is in the ointment,

staring back in the truth of time.
