The bells ring aloud for all to hear;
Calling the far and near, strangers and dear.
The fateful & faithful gather to class & mass,
All sitting neatly together in rows en masse.
Listening to the teachers & preachers profess;
By words of professors & prophets they impress.
“Repeat well what you have been told in school,
or you shall surely suffer the fate of a fool!”
“Have the utmost faith in everything that I tell,
or all that awaits are the fiery depths of hell!”
…And the bells keep on ringing…
