Molten Calf
This is the god of lawlessness
A god of wantonness
And animal appetites
It a god of body and hunger
Of longing and wanting
That is my comfort
In these wild places and my banner
And standard in the battles
For I have grown weary and restless
In the shadow of this mountain
A god of singing and drinking
Of eating and dancing
A god of lewdness and wild gestures 
Of revelry and release
In this desert place
And awaken my heart to the
Worship of the whim and
The adoration of the urge 
In a wasteland so barren
In a world empty of God
