Set the Night Singing #2.38
Updated: Oct 15
There's one way to Heaven and one way to Hell –
no matter that Heaven is poorly described.
Hell, too, come to think of it...
still heed my charge:
be faithful, sing glory that you're circumscribed.
Will entrance to Heaven, avoidance of Hades
lay clothes on a back or a roof overhead?
Such questions are trivial. Be you at peace!
Such trifles won't matter once everything's dead.
Eternal magnificence – this is the matter,
to beckon that others head heavenward, too.
These are the rules, which God has ordained.
You question the game? Then to Hades with you.
