8n8s

Stercoranists
thought the substance of the host
had a separate soul
and after separating from it,
passed out of the body through the anus.

Transubstantiationists
said the host
was entirely converted
into Christ's body.

Doing the sum,
with nothing excreted,
the more host you'd eat,
the more Christful you'd become.

Fatness was one of their fates;
another,
to be gibed as the 8n8s.
