Temporary Sins, Eternal Punishment

Temporary Sins, Eternal Punishment
by Sherry Matulis* (excerpts)

Where are you when dirty old men
of the cloth hump, hump, hump
defenseless five year olds, admonishing
Eternal Hellfire if they tell, leaving
them bloody and teeth chattering constrained;
and then walk away from the crime,
skin and bones and reputation intact?
Why don't you do something?

***

Where are you? Are you busy
pimping for preachers?
Designing a fish without stomach acids?
Planning a bigger, better flood?
Stoking the forever fire?

Build a huge one; you deserve it.
My 'sins' are small and temporary.
For yours, I'd recommend
Eternal Punishment.

Sometimes life lets you down and you need a cash advance loan . I dont recomend this. I would recomend learning to manage your money a little better. There are a lot of great sites on how to manage your money. If you need some money right now and you dont have a choice visit.. http://cashadvance444.com/ .. cash advance loan

Waste your money and your only out the money but waste your time and you waste a part of your life...
