behold the latest of my pets!
Though acquiring them was trouble,
my investmentâ€™s without regrets.
Theyâ€™re exotic, entertaining,
quite the spectacle for my mind.
Theyâ€™re useful too, and quite content,
inside the cages Iâ€™ve designed.
Yes, regard my grand achievement;
for throughout countless cosmic nights,
I labored to train these creatures,
now their deferenceâ€”what delight!
Seeds of myself, have I planted,
and watered their weak minds and flesh.
By giving them a few craved treats,
I swayed their wills, with mine, to mesh.
Oh, arenâ€™t they an intriguing bunch?
(Though not popular, I might say.)
These foreign beasts need protection,
from those that would cast them away!
See? There is Pastor Rein, my swine,
more rare than Iâ€™d like him to be.
Behind closed doors heâ€™s a pervert;
his rare trait needs breeding, you see.
Over there, are my two parrots,
Sister Grey and Sister Birch.
Those two can stir up such gossip;
they know how to bring down a church!
Elder White is my polar bear.
Heâ€™ll swiftly strike anyone down;
that tries to mess with tradition
or treads on his false, sacred ground.
Look! Over thereâ€”Sister Diamond.
(You know how I love a good snake!)
She sits waiting to sink venom,
into those that make a mistake.
Brother Ben is my crocodile.
He pulls under, drowns, shreds apart;
blabbing lack of faith in the poor,
and those hit by my fiery darts.
Just look at my many monkeys,
such variety in the lot!
Who cares their names? Theyâ€™re all flunkies,
mimicking my best working plots.
And Brother Tom there; my prized wolf;
slyly sneaks sin in, without fight.
With political correctness;
he gets wrong accepted as right.
Ah! Brother Bell, my hyena;
his self-righteous laughâ€”gives me thrills!
With church board packs, he heads attacks,
and eliminates, maims and kills!
These animals are my treasures;
they are exotic to the core,
with my spiritâ€¦And I want more!
Demons! Listen to your master!
Guard this human-zoo of mine well;
for each must get their due rewardâ€¦
Eternity with me, in hell!
