i wish i believed in life after death

in a hereafter in heaven in nirvana

waiting on improbable swathes of clouds

painless problemless lifeless nothingness

human essence gathered and blown around by ceiling fans

spending an eternity an infinity of blissful ignorance

and i wish i believed in reckoning in consequences

for catcallers and rapists and abusers and killers

thrown down the rabbit hole to nuclear wonderland

to feel their pain suffer what they do

eaten by flames of a too close sunset

but that's unrealistic and what sounds about right

is an abyss for souls a dump for mankind

a vast emptiness shared by everyone everything

a catch-all cure-all winner-take-all

great stew of individuality simmering on the middle burner.
