Title: I Am Going to Hell
Post by: Wordweaver on October 24, 2018, 04:40 PM
I am Going to Hell

One thing I know for sure is, I am going to hell.
But I am not peeking at it through a fogged window
I am opening the door and facing it straight up
and it better be mighty careful with those flames
around this powder keg I may blow the whole thing
to you guessed it, Hell.

I have been an honest and fair man but if you go
by the letters of the book then I fail to meet the
criteria required when judgement gets handed down.
I suppose I spilled my seed on the ground cheated on
my tithes and opened a lot of forbidden riddle books.

The only ones concerned about my plight are the
sinners that know they are in jeopardy because
I am ahead of them on the waiting list for a
reprieve. I have the added bonus of never being
hypocritical by going to church on Sunday after
spending the week stacking my sins in the shadows.

Those shadows know too much (on all of us).  Definitely words to ponder.  Those who enjoy a good debate could argue this one ... the devout Christians will tell you to repent, there's still time!  What it boils down to though, it's between you and the shadows, and of course, the Man upstairs.

Well girls I needed a subject I have never written about before and besides
we know a straight arrow like me would never be sent on an expedition to
hell.  I will be arm and arm with you two up in the clouds of course.
