In the afterlife
You could be headed for the serious strife
Now you make the scene all day
But tomorrow there'll be hell to pay

People listen attentively
I mean about future calamity
I used to think the idea was obsolete
Until I heard the old man stamping his feet.

This is a place where eternally
Fire is applied to the body
Teeth are extruded and bones are ground
Then baked into cakes which are passed around.

Beauty, talent, fame, money, refinement
Top skill and brain
But all the things you try to hide
Will be revealed on the other side.

Now the d and the a and the m
And the n and the a
And the t and the i-o-n
Lose your face, lose your name
Then get fitted for a suit of flame

So, someone finally filmed our church choir "doing" the offertory hymn. May you burn. SLOWLY, VERY SLOWLY. But I will pray for you and your tambourine, ukalele, guitar, and especially the holy water bubble machine.

Oh, that is funny. I sent a link to all my Evangelical friends.

I think I need to go to Mass now.

This would be great art if you were stoned.
