The next stanza starts with an internal rhyme: "My paper can caper". The simple rhyme suggests that the paper can leap and jump about like a child. The connotation of the word "abandon" adds to this suggestion of unrestrained movement or activity.

Christian Morals In Beowulf
Number of words: 625 - Number of pages: 3

.... Adam and Eve and was the one who murdered Abel, his brother, out of a jealous rage for God's favor to Abel. This shows us that Grendel had more than just a dislike for the men, the song was showing Grendel that his ancestor was looked upon as the bad person and was therefore the underlying concept for Grendel's rage.

(967) In stanza three Hous .....

.... or consideration. The title is trying to portray going to church as a perfunctory task programmed into the train of thought. To the people in this poem going to church is like grocery shopping. It is something that must be done. Everyone knows it is the right thing to do, except in this case many people do not understand the concept behind it. Religion does not make a difference. If their parents shop at the Piggly Wiggly then they may also. If their parents are Luthern then they are also. People withdrew the meaning of religion over time. Almost like in Orwell’s 1984, how people .....
