SATAN AND DIVINES 1Of ghostly spooks in times and of old, Satan his name the spirit of fame,In printing stands and often been told. Thought very shrewd with many a name,Miracles performed in olden daysTo creatures vengeance in many ways. 2Indias fables through gloomy morns, History score for thousands of years,Satan appeared with tail, wings and horns, By Ganges River wrought awful fears.Turned upside down wrought reptiles and toad,Turned Ganges River to running blood. 3Through in Egypts land by River Nile, Satan appeared his name there was Sat,Commanded beast from serpent to snail, Strolled down by Nile from source to outlet,Of thunder was cause rainstorms and fogsTurned cows into wolves, sheep into dogs. 4Prowling through land in Egypt of old, Like a roving beast with tail and horn,Satan with furies by records told, To Babylon came before shining morn.Turned the cities to bewildered camps.Caused cows milk blood on his horny tramps. 5Touring at nights caused lightning and storms, Sat
