Willibrord


In violation of Christ's canons
A saint...was declared Willibrord
after innocent animals he gored
Instead of being canonized
animals wanted him cannonized.

As they returned their ship was by the wind blown offcourse and landed on Heligoland, an island deemed sacred by inhabitants who maintained silence and who prohibited the killing of any living being.

Provocatively, St Willibrord set about baptising people in a loud voice and slaughtered a number of animals.
