The tones of some Gregorian chant
Hissing from the opening of a cavern
Entice me to enter
Even though I know it's occupied
By the occult.
Once in;  will I encounter Goddess worship?
If so,  that's no threat to me
For I've no grudge against my sisters.
Will I be fed a meal
That required no animal sacrifice?
If so,  I may return.
I am no barefoot seeker,
But am no skeptic either
So I'd be willing to try
To understand fire-breathing shamans.
The minute I sense the hailing of evil
Over good,  I'll slip out of the cavern
And try to seal the opening.
