None dare call it holyball: A sly ode to volleyball … or is it Baal?

And the Lord God spake unto Adam saying,

Hearken unto the word of the Lord oh son of man

For it shall come to pass in the last days

When your  children’s children, and their children after them

Have settled in a land far from these scepter’d isles

That they will form a game after mine own name;

And ply  it with a  leathern orb

Made of calf-skin and woven thread.

But they will not call it holy

Lest I  smite them  with disease and pestilence

Because I, the Lord God, alone am Holy.

oooO000

But a time will come when their children’s children,

And their children after them

Will hail the orb as a leathern  god;

Made of calf skin, gall bladder and woven thread

While prancing in the sun like the heathens whom I despise.

Yea, in due time they will carry on like  loons

Cavorting  butt nekkid in  the sand and the sun

While smoking incense and myrrh from ungodly chalices

Like  heathens unto  Baal and graven images of Baal.

Did I say Baal?

000O000

Yes, your children’s children and their children after them

Will do all these things,

But they will not hail the leathern orb as holy

Lest I  smite them  with disease and pestilence

Because I, the Lord God alone am Holy.

000O000

And Adam rent his rainments before the  Lord

And prayed that the day would not come,

When his children’s children,

And their children after them,

Would hail the leathern orb as holy Baal

Lest the Lord smite them with disease and pestilence

Because He alone  is Holy.

(Selah)

None Dare Call It Holyball … or is it Baal: Play thing or quasi-religious artifact for sun-dazed lunatics? The leathern orb made of calfskin, bladder and woven thread.
