Near humans all contemptible I find,
Each adding injury to life's offense
In gouging out yet Reason's eye till blind
To Ethics of a Rational defense;
Full ignorant in basic physics still,
Core chemistry, and root biology,
The truant rubber with the absent pill
But procreate a cult mythology;
While cheerfully they live a holy mess
Of feeling false forever on forked tongue,
The "Merry Christmas!" fanged and mawed "God bless!"
The Beast beneath "You Bear Your G*******d Dung!"--
As lo! The many few at Heaven's feast
For children chained in Hell care not the least!
