My tongue is encumbered
By the breath that I expire
As I recite a litany
To a discordant choir. 
 
To anthropomorphize 
My conscience, to give it the form 
Of a clergyman who inculcates 
A choral boy; reform 
 
My creed and catechize 
The choral boy whose throat's a mire 
With the rue of a reprobate. 
Sing an octave higher.
