Goe vp thou bald head…

A group of rebellious children
Were raised to hate God and indulge sin
They insulted the prophet
Who cursed them to Tophet
Two bears tore the bones from their skin

And he went vp from thence vnto Bethel: and as hee was going vp by the way, there came foorth little children out of the citie, and mocked him, and said vnto him, Goe vp thou bald head, goe vp thou bald head. And hee turned backe, and looked on them, and cursed them in the Name of the LORD: and there came foorth two shee Beares out of the wood, and tare fortie and two children of them.

*Notes
-Good old fashioned Limerick
-The black and white artwork really suits the subject matter, which is a bible verse
