  • Judith! Diana! Hercules! Venus!
    Three blessed with wisdom
    One with a penis.

    Standing up to sing a song
    Kneeling down to pray
    Supplicating on the floor
    Now run outside and play!

    Play a song upon the pipes
    Play it clear and loud
    Sweet the music fills the air
    Calms the madding crowd

    What ho the pipes! The drums! The fifes!
    The stamp of marching feet!
    A rhythmic pounding skirling sound
    A pulsing primal beat!

    Dancing to their music with the gods between us
    Judith! Diana! Hercules! Venus!
