...like pear cast before swine, never can it price, priceless be redeemed...

Seal unadulterable
Like the veil shielding the holy of holies
Pristinely and invisibly encased
With the covenant liquid
Irrevocable
 
Like the great iron barred gate
Enclosing the kingdom from whence 
Many a great destiny shall be summoned
By one wielding the scepter long preordained
 
Indeed, it's essence still retained
Keeps the mileu better purified than lotus
A crystal fountain ensconced in a wilderness
Of thorn and briar where many treacherously
Try to tresspass
 
A secret vine meant for one husbandman
Who shall one day claim his harvest
Or a highway where many a feet do trode
Appearance cannot thus reveal
 
If a pillar, honor and trust doth tarry
But once a gliding-sliding door virtue is misplaced
Like pearl cast before swine
Never can it price, priceless, be redeemed
For each forfeited virtue merges with souls
Louche and remorseless
 
When the twain become one
One would it be with many, not once
But eternally intermingled with the
Covenant liquid irrevocably
 
Seal broken, gate unbarred, fountain discovered
Garden revealed and harvest reaped by unworthy souls 
Awashed with my crystal fountain
My soul knows no respite
For rarely could virtue be replaced
