Aint!

Ellen Reed


(First part is spoken)

I meet many kinds of pagans everywhere I go.
The other day I met a group who worshipped GI Joe.
There are many pagan pathways, some ancient and some quaint.
I thought I'd take this chance to speak of several things that ain't!

Being in the SCA does not make you a pagan
Whatever faith your persona doth profess.
A pentagram on your device
Don't make you pagan, though it's nice.
A ritual robe is more than fancy dress!

CHORUS:
Don't make a mockery of all I hold dear.
My path is not a hobby or a game.
It isn't something that you play,
It's something you live every day
And if you don't, you don't deserve the name.

Going to a sci-fi con does not make you a pagan
However great a filker you may be.
The spiritual path that I am on
Is more than "Mists of Avalon"
Or any other book by MZB!

CHORUS:
Don't make a mockery of all I hold dear.
My path is not a hobby or a game.
It isn't something that you play,
It's something you live every day
And if you don't, you don't deserve the name.

Playing advanced D&D does not make you a pagan
However high a level you may be.
I hate to sound like such a bitch,
But spell points don't make you a witch!
Initiations don't come with EP!

CHORUS:
Don't make a mockery of all I hold dear.
My path is not a hobby or a game.
It isn't something that you play,
It's something you live every day
And if you don't, you don't deserve the name.
