127,542. Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!
Chrissy shan’t miss
her pet snake.
It slithered and it wriggled
that wicked fellow John.
It looked at her longingly,
Chrissy’s pet snake
Hiss hiss! He he!
She hit it with a broom
in the living-room,
Chrissy’s pet snake.
‘For Pete’s sake!’
(for that was his name)
‘You’ve squashed his brain!’
I yelled at her,
though not deterred
‘I should have shot
both you and the snake,’
she said to me.
Ha ha! He he! Hiss hiss!
Chrissy shan’t miss
her pet snake.
[esias, The Snake, 1997]
22. The mystery is that religion is but a tool to control the masses. Knowledge (or wisdom) is their only god, through which man himself will become god. The snake and the dragon are both symbols of wisdom. Lucifer is a personification of the symbol. It was Lucifer who tempted Eve to entice Adam to eat of the tree of knowledge and thus free man from the bonds of ignorance. The WORSHIP (a lot different from STUDY) of knowledge, science, or technology is Satanism in its purest form, its secret symbol is the all-seeing eye in the pyramid.
