The Garden of Earthly Delights
Born from the void and still pristine
Tranquil, vast and cold
See the orb of blue and green
When he spake the light shone gold
Brought to life, in the image of god
In this holy place
Settled among the creatures odd
Eve, dear girl, avert thy gaze
Claims to love them all;
his world below
Minding not their fall;
a mirthful show
Merriments in the centerpiece
Weird things in galore
Is this the cradle of the disease
that man alone must answer for?
Joy and delight, forever ceased
Eaten alive by the cauldron beast
Let the drones ring to the sound of doom
