oh build your ship of death

Half Cocks: Anglican Miserere

WASH ME THROUGHLY but not roughly;

with gentle cleansing action make me

buff, and fragrant as a calf

is to its mother. Hyssop may

have been marjoram; moderately

neurotoxic, to avoid in pregnancy.

Bruiser, relent: re-knit what you have

fractured, grant what we crave:

deep-down ablution, chthonic irrigation.
