Baphomet In Jerusalem

Baphomet walks the streets of Jerusalem
that Templar idol of yesteryore
that haunts most occult folklore
Nine foot tall is he
he hits his head on many a tree
He is union of Hermes and Aphrodite
a hermaphrodite
told by French king to fly a kite

The Knights-Templar were tortured 😖
and admitted to worshiping this idol in Jerusalem orchard
Lie? Truth? Or myth?
But right now the goat needed to find a biff.

The Baphomet was a winged hermaphrodite with a torch between his horns
a sight not seen on those equine unicorns
and a pentagram on his forehead
not a tattoo his mama had said
On his right arm the Latin word SOLVE
that Palmolive liquid could not dissolve
on his left arm COAGULA
but not the blood of Dracula
These were Latin for the English expressions “separate” and “join together” respectively
not found in old services for Matrimony.

Two fingers on his right hand point up
he’s asking for more than one cup
Two fingers on his left hand point down
his feminine half forgot her nightgown
He had male phallus and female breasts
to the point where even LGBTs were saying “Give it a rest”
He had head of goat 🐐 on humanoid body
but he was allowed to drive in Saudi
though unveiled he was like Blavatsky’s Isis
and now he’d send Mid-East into crisis
Eliphas Levi first drew his pic
but substituted snakes for prick
for artist did worry about going blind
remembering that day his mommy did find
But enough of that
blind is the bat
who did not see
what Baphomet did to yonder tree
The goat head Levi borrowed from Egyptian goat headed deity Banebdjedet
sprayed by Greek Pan’s semen equally wet.
Baphomet was called the Sabbat Goat
whose goat’s milk went down Crowley’s throat
and Aleister joined Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
and took a ride aboard mighty Beatles’ Yellow Sub

The Baphomet grinning a goatish grin did say,
I do feel like frolicking in the hay
My motto is “As above, so below”
will yonder Hebrew maiden give me a blow?
While the maiden did play for Baphomet the final Trump
The Donald did dream he took it in the rump.

And so I say to you, Miss, Madam, good sir
that as the days of Noah were
so the coming of the Son of Man shall be
for just look at what Baphomet is doing to that poor young tree.

    A wonderfully amusing ditty!

    That reminds of a story
    Aleister Crowley once told me.
    When staying at Hotel California,
    the one on Route 66,
    run by the Knights Templar,
    and nowhere near California,
    he met with deep regret
    that horny beast, Baphomet.
    Baphomet gave him hell
    all night, in that infamous hotel,
    so Crowley silently snuck
    out the backdoor, crying 😢
    “No More”, and left
    without paying the bill.

      I bet that really pissed Baphomet off no end.

      • David Redpath said,

        I think perhaps
        Aleister is now
        paying the bill
        somewhere south
        of Margaritaville
        down Purgatory way.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes and no doubt Aleister is probably looking for more than just his lost shaker of salt.

      • David Redpath said,

        In old Napoli
        Baphomet is known as
        ‘Desdemona, il Tutti Frutti Demone’.
        They are not very PC
        in old Napoli.

      • David Redpath said,

        In Rome
        he was know
        as ‘il duce’
        because he
        would love to
        hoochie coochie
        Baphomet gives
        as good as he takes
        He ain’t no lady 🚺
        Make no mistake

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And then of course there was the other Il Duce – Benito Mussolini- who was caught hanging around as the Second World War in Italy 🇮🇹 was coming to an end.

      • David Redpath said,

        Him, and his girlfriend,
        just got dragged into it.

      • David Redpath said,

        Like Eva Braun
        less brain
        more brawn

      • David Redpath said,

        The usual story.
        Two crazy kids,
        hanging around
        with the wrong crowd.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        An example of what happens when “Partisanship” is taken to an extreme.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Indeed they are not very politically correct. 😂

  5. Hyperion said,

    Chris, are you sure you didn’t accidentally grab one of blustering Bill Campbell’s cannabis suppositories by accident? This Baphomet fellow sounds like a pansexual fruit salad. 🙂

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Good for you to notice that, my friend. 😀

      Then I’ve caught the essence of what I was trying to convey about the Baphomet- that he’s an androgynous pan sexual fruit salad.

      And as such this demon whose idol was worshiped by a small wayward group of Knights-Templar (I don’t think he was worshiped by all Knights-Templar for I believe that was just an excuse that France’s King Philip IV used to destroy the order) and whose image was caught in a mystical vision by the French occultist Eliphas Lévi makes him the perfect god for the times in which we’re living.

      • Hyperion said,

        I do agree that Baphomet is ripe for taking over the worship of millions of earthlings who saw their own Hildebeast vanquished by a more powerful Orange oracle of anal orifices from which much green vapored prophesy is heard like the braying of donkeys and quacking of ducks and the overt amorous frogs at the edge of the swamp not drained.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It is the quacking, ribbiting, braying and flatulent sound of the last Trump as the Apocalypse descends upon us.

      • Hyperion said,

        I have no doubts. It’s not a horn that Gabriel is blowing but there is no mistaking that sound of an angry elephant, braying donkey, and quacking duck. The big Bassoon has finally blown.

    Listening to Jimmy Buffett
    all day, at the Purgatory All You Can Eat Buffet’, is more than anyone deserves.

    The image of this goat-headed diabolic idol is synonymous to the transgenders in our country who haven’t had their phallus removed yet but has been taking contraceptive pills that has a side effect of breast enlargement. Lol. It’s hilarious but it got me curious. Is it true that Baphomet has a major role in Satanism and occult? Anyway, as always, your writing has taken history to the next level of awesomeness through this work of art. Loved it! 😍

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you, Apple. ❤️

      Yes, the Baphomet has become a major figure in Satanism and the occult since the mid-19th Century.

      Prior to that, historically speaking, when France’s King Philip IV started to stamp out the Knights-Templar beginning in 1307 by accusing them of heresy, the claim was made that the Knights-Templar secretly worshiped an idol called Baphomet in their ceremonies but no one is quite sure what this idol actually looked like.

      Then in the mid-19th Century, the French occultist Eliphas Lévi wrote a couple of books on occultic rituals and dogma from 1854 to 1856 and in those books, he first drew the illustration of the Baphomet that is known to the world today – a goat’s head on a hermaphroditic human body with both female breasts and a male phallus.

      Later the late 19th Century and early 20th Century practicing English occultist Aleister Crowley incorporated this goat 🐐headed hermaphroditic human body into some of his writings and used this particular image as an object of worship in his Gnostic Mass.

      • Apple Rae said,

        Wow I didn’t know all of these historical facts! Thanks for taking the time to bring me back to the past. I’m amazed by all the knowledge you have acquired. Thank you for sharing! ♥️

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You’re very welcome, Apple. ❤️

    When I read this, I was actually rapping it, quasi-goth style (no greenery needed, either!). 😀
