“Daughter of Eve, Son of Adam,
listen to thy list of sins.
Gather round all, sir, madam,
Heaven is open to all who obey God’s whims.
Do not envy those around you,
take out thy’s wrath on no one.
Show no pride for those baby blues,
to be gluttonous is no fun.
Work your share, do not sloth away,
the sin of lust will leave you filthy.
Never scrum to greed this day,
All of which you are guilty.”
“So, since you say, I’ll end up in Hell,
I shall take the Devil’s path and enjoy it as well!”

I was told for the first time when I was in middle school by a boy who is now in my creative writeing class that I was going to hell. Seeing him again inspired me to write this.
