Washed in the blood of the Lamb
Baptized in the waters of the River Jordan
Bathed in the balm of the Buddha
Absolved through ablution in the ghats of the Ganges
Immersed in the ichor of the Ibis
Dry-cleaned in the solvent of the Holy Goat
Laundered in the lymph of the Lizard
Soaked in the saliva of the Sacred Simian
Flooded with the phlegm of the Flamingo
Doused by the dung of the Divine Dugong
Washed-up in wine before one’s Time
