Another piece of glass falls from the chandelier

Shattering because of the blasphemy you have shown here

In this desert you walk

As he did then speak

Of the mephitical demon who tempted him

The demon that was so presumptuous that he would give in

He tried to throttlemy son’s temptations out

To make him give in to them

But to no avail

In this desert, you do walk

But to that demon’s will you please

Another shard falls from the chandelier

Henotheism does not exist in you

Your faith does hibernate

Why do you throw stones at my chandelier, daughter?

Why do you break my heart?
