You, who so many seeds did waste,
Why do you deserve to procreate?

Why, you look surprised!
Why is there surprise in your eyes?
See no fault, know not the cause?
Have you no fear of God and his laws?

Will you marry the Great Whore?
Sooner marry off the Great Whore?
Live and die by the sword,
Such a strange sword.

So, or not so?
Always reap what you sow?
Only reap what you sow?
So, or not so?

Words and deeds
Are they not dwarfed by infinity?
No randomness, it does not exist.
It is all actions and consequence.

Will you look into the Great Eye?
Rather look away from the Great Eye?
Afraid of fate and obsessed with time
And the ages.

You shouldn't've eaten that fruit.
Strange fruit, indeed.
Did you swallow or did you spit out the seeds?
'Tis a strange food you've given me.

A strange food, a strange food, and yet I thank you.
