E A E A I stumbled with a friend of mine to see a fiend before the shrine E A E E A with pointed ears and furry breath, he summoned men of faith to death E A Within a cloister full of ferns and ivy twining 'round the urns E A that brimmed with duckweed and with snails. E A The fiend his mouth was full of nails E A E A "Oh come and see my swarming shrine", his little pointed eyes did shine E A E E A but God is life and life is lust and will be after you are dust E A The shrine, it writhed with giblets and with hairs E A and little tounges in flickering pairs E A E E A and throats that grew from pads of cheese and then came out behind the knees E A E A A pumpkin smiled and from its beak a pair of scaly legs did peek E A E E A with squirming elvers for its hair and from that midst an eye did stare. E A E A It winked at me as if to say "You've seen enough, now go away" E A E ? I sing of life, I sing of death, until I might run out of breath E A E A I stumbled with a friend of mine to see a fiend before a shrine E A E E A with pointed eyes and septic ears, I knew this fiend did last for years.
