He will help those
    who are fair when they judge.
He will give strength to those
    who turn back their enemies at the city gate.

Israel’s leaders are drunk from wine.
    They can’t walk straight.
They are drunk from beer.
    They are unsteady on their feet.
Priests and prophets drink beer.
    They can’t walk straight.
    They are mixed up from drinking too much wine.
They drink too much beer.
    They are unsteady on their feet.
The prophets see visions but don’t really understand them.
    The priests aren’t able to make good decisions.
They throw up. All the tables are covered
    with the mess they’ve made.
There isn’t one spot on the tables
    that isn’t smelly and dirty.
