A Divine Tragedy

your mind in purgatory
can’t wait for a second death
dissipate
squander, succumb
terminate

missing a soul
a vacant bowl
and the glass is half empty
orange peels scattered; a flesh eating disease
red bath water before lunch

you’ll be in Hell
Inferno
Purgatory
Limbo
Underworld
Everlasting Fire

those you see in Limbo
“their faces twisted toward their haunches
found it necessary to walk backward
because they could not see ahead of them

and since he wanted so
to see ahead
he looks behind
and walks a backward path”

Lust
aphrodisia
dolly-birds in sight
but sexuality down here
how peculiar it may be

in Gluttony
you get your wish
a second death
drink yourself to it

underworld currency;
a soul for anything
in Avarice
you are consciously ruining one’s self

you realize in Anger
there’s no fighting these places
emotions
actions
reactions

Who art thou to mystify the Spirit of Christ!
blithering heretic!

once damned to Violence
you may not make it through
perhaps you will survive
likelihood slim

fraud, my friend
a root of religion
society
evolution
fail with honor?
succeed by deceit?

and Treachery
such they named after the sham of destiny
calling it injustice
simple bad luck

no one cares for you
