your lord is your shepherd (baaaaa)

you shall not want (he tells you what to do & you

do it)

he lies you down in green pastures (sloppy lawn sex

& bestiality)

he leads you alongside the water (as if you needed

help in doing so)

he restores your soul (not hard to replenish

something that never existed to begin with)

he leads you down a path of righteousness in

his name’s sake (to go down any other path would

force you to think for yourself, how convenient

that a fictional character was mustered up prior

to your birth so you would have a path of

righteousness to be spit out blindly into without a

thought or a breath sounded otherwise) &


though you walk through a valley in the shadow of

death (human existence which is not always

peaches n’ cream)

you will fear no evil (evil is bred in your


for your creation is with you,

disciplined daily by the rod &

brainwashed to brandish the staff in relentless war in

his name

your lord prepares a meal for the morning after (how

he treats his concubines)

your cup runs over with goodness & mercy

if you believe it does &

all the days of your life will be tainted with what

others may not want in their own lives,

but you will insist is the norm

perpetuating your character forever

until that day when our species stops singing songs

and starts dealing with its own problems together

without the want to be a slave.
