The Punishment
Gifreu, patrick2111111

God is omnipresent -
Meaning that he never sleeps.
By way of proof, this strange hairy animal,
Unable to do anything but run on all fours,
Was captured not long ago in the Pyrenees
And brought to the wood in the zoo,
Where I stand looking at it.
It was into an animal of this kind
That Brother Garí was transformed
After fornicating with one of Guifré's daughters,
And then murdering her.
For all that the flesh is weak, as they say,
The holy man, who lived in the Comtal palace,
Was punished severely.
