The Godhead goon
Brought us religion from heaven’s own spring
And your teachers will croon
Of Joon’s sacred boon
But they seem to have forgotten one thing
Joon’s berth is in glory*
Handsome and hoary
The soldier who studied the arts
We all know his story
Noble, pious and gory
But what of his great holy farts?

*Translator’s notes: “Markfel Joon’s berth is in glory,” is from a Goon historical text called The Broken Soil (Hib-ai Klinjustuh gra). This text has not been recovered in its entirety but the phrase used in Yoll’s poem was found in sec. 9 par. 17. We can only assume it was a widespread text that even goonchildren would be familiar with.
