The Spirit Was Expelled
Darkness crept in like serpent
From a very tall apple tree
The rich switched on their noisy generators
The poor carried up and down their smokey lanterns
All in coping the darkness that has come
When the dinner was done
They wore their bed uniform:
Sarah' parents led young Tobias to bed,
Raphael's instructions came back to them
So they took the fish's liver
And heart out of the bag
And placed them on incense burning fiercely
The smell drove the spirit to hell
Raphael chased after, caught
And bound the spirit hand and foot...
There was mute then unmute
Birds began to sing as birds
Rats began to read as rats
Voices spoke normally from tongues.
