Light a Candle for Me
Living in the world has its earthly compensation
Was brought up as a gold-digger in my stressful nation
All the vices I could think of I pursued with devotion
The preaching of the Cross was met with trepidation
Lust and desires after the worst kinds of corruption
Were the things I pursued with reckless abandon
What "they" called SIN I called RECREATION
Now I'm "Living Large" in Hell and damnation.
The thirst is a killer in this horrible situation
Now I know the term for my behaviour is "abomination"
Regret is my drink and pain, my meditation
As I remember the chances I spurned without illumination
Now I am ready to accept full salvation
Get me out of here - even if I have to use levitation
All things are possible - so the Bible chooses to mention
Now I am the center of Hell's full attention
"What a great loss" - they said at my funeral oration
"He's resting in peace, but we believe in re-incarnation"
My friends all over earth all "grieved" with genuine "compassion"
And took my beer afterwards amidst cheerful discussion
The topic of their talk was geared towards Education
About the Climate change and the market inclination
Who , then will hear this great and loud reverberation
Of wails, gnashing of teeth and total devastation?
