Seven Gods

I know a man with seven Gods
and he wouldn’t tell me who they were.

He is visited by angels and devils daily
and has condemned himself by making deals.

I know him and he’s
broken my heart.

For my god is a jealous god
of fire and flood
and drink the blood
of my lord.

And I fear my lord
because I know no other.

But I know a man with seven gods
though he wouldn’t tell me who they were.
