The very model of a Bronze Age despot deity
He is the very model of a Bronze Age despot deity
With imprecations animal and rock and plant and air, you see
He is the king of kings and he provokes some fights historical
From Jericho to Meggido, by methods categorical;
He's very well acquainted, too, with matters theological,
He understands poetics, both the sane and the illogical,
About how to be ethical he says you've got a lot to see,
(lot to see, lot to see, lot to see..? Aha!)
With many cheerful facts about the uses of hypocrisy.
He's very good at unifying and divisive politics
He knows the thaumateurgic names of angels and their little tricks;
In short in matters animal and rock and plant and air, you see
He is the very model of a Bronze Age despot deity.
