The Devil and the Holy Seed
Kill them! Kill them all--
The better, the more--
And don't forget the best!
We must, we must kill the best.
This has been the devil's theme
Throughout our generations.
He hates the holy seed.
Satan, his unholiness,
Has attacked the seed
Has hacked at the seed
With deadly creativity.
He ordered the killing of
All male babies
Among the Hebrews in Egypt.
He set himself as a king:
A hungry Moloch god
Who loved to smell some babies burn.
Then his sandalled soldiers
Dashed the children on the rocks
Or ripped them from the womb
Or brought starvation
Until mothers ate their own.
Foul Herod filled Bethlehem's streets
With holy babies' blood.
Now he's still at work,
Wiping out the godly seed--
With gay pride days (no babies there)
And family planning clinics
That think of children as a disease
That swift dismemberment will cure.
His hosts pollute with porn
Promoting childless pleasures
And offer drugs the morning after--
Insecticide for infant infestations.
The devil hates the godly seed.
Sons are indeed a heritage from the Lord,
children, a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the sons born in one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them.
--Psalm 127:3-5a, HCSB
