Ezekiel Bread

Ezekiel 4:9,12 "Also, take for yourself wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and spelt; put them into one vessel, and make bread of them.

And you shall eat it as barley cakes and bake it using fuel of human waste in their sight."

God's call to Ezekiel

His strange way to fame 

It definitely was not easy

Though "eze" was in his name

Called to lie down on his side

Not to stand on his feet

He was to take beans and lentils 

Millet, spelt and wheat 

He took these ingredients 

Here is what God had said

Mix them up in a bowl

Then make it into some bread

Of flavors and spice 

This meal was bereft

Ezekiel would not win 

Baking this on Master Chef

It didn't sound too bad though

It might be good to taste 

But then God added one thing

"Cook it over human waste"

Ezekiel said, "Now hold on God

I think the bread part was cool

But I have never eaten anything 

Cooked over human stool"

I would question my calling 

I might even vomit

I think I might be tempted 

To just go non prophet 

But God was very merciful 

To Ezekiel his son

God changed the baking instructions

From human to cow dung

Now please hear me out 

I don't want to sound like an ogre

I know they sell Ezekiel bread

Over at Walmart and Kroger

With store bought Ezekiel bread

Of healthy sprouted grain

Can someone please help me?

Can someone please explain?

It just seems very unclear

I don't want to buy it in haste

I need to know if it was cooked

Over human or cow waste

Cinnamon raisin sounds good

I will throw a couple in my cart

I just can't ponder

About that manure baking part 

I have a respect for Ezekiel 

He was led as he was fed

He obeyed his prophetic calling

In eating Ezekiel bread
