Some find safety beneath its gate,
while some may die beneath its weight!
Old and broken, it brings forth life.

It is evil's incarnation,
Once used for veneration,
The root of all procreation.
All you can do is shiver,
When it begins to slither.

It's in the parson, but not in the people;
It's in the oyster, but not in the shell;
It's in the clapper, but not in the bell.
