CÆDMON’S HYMN, a song about the Creation, THE STORY OF CÆDMON from An Ecclesiastical History of the English People by the Venerable Bede
We haven’t yet finished speaking of love
we haven’t yet finished smoking our cigs
we wonder why the Courts condemn
a murderer so beautiful
he pales the day.
Stick your enraptured body to mine
which dies from buggering
the softest sweetest scoundrel
in weighing in wonder your round blond balls
my cock of black marble pierces you
to the heart.
