Salvation

Food is good
For thine I bleed
Hamburgers the bane of thine nation
But how thou mithe ask
for thine bread and meat on a slab
Blood in humans they are for but they are green
The vane of thine very life is at the fingertips of death
Thy automobile is at the hands of the mechanic
For the nation is unrest for thine Angust burger
Freshest of thy cows and bred from the greatest meat
Peacock for thy feather are blocked
Promoted is what will happen
Whilst getting burnt to a crisp
Bane of the greatest god thine Zeuseis the lord and bane of all thunder
For Thunder is good but wisdom is greater
For thy hand of thy maiden Athena thou mustest getteth thine casa blanca
And hercules the slayer of all men gives pity to but one female
Wife she is for but thine is divorced for he is still loved
King he is but tis not a prince
Bread is the fruit for thine christian bod
for then there was light out of the darkest cave
giveth my moses light of thine wound tree
