Down To Hell  

We're living our lives on borrowed time.
Existing here on God's last dime.
And just where in the Hell is He?

I don't think that He's expired.
Perhaps it's just that He is tired.
But it's still woe for you and me.

Because with free will we were fated.
In this world that He created.
And who gives that gift to kids?

I wonder what did He expect.
There's so much that we have wrecked.
As Humanity hit the skids.

We're sliding down to Hell with a rebel yell.
And there's nothing He will do.
For it might be radical but He's on sabbatical.
So to Hell with me and you!

Michael "Is It Getting A Mite Warmer Folk?" Gallatin

Author Notes

Yet another poem about Mankind screwing up the gift God gave us and God apparently being OK with that choice. Tell me my friends, where's the "fire next time"?

I love this. It's so lyrical and your rhyming is flawless. It flows very well. I love the message Evan though I'm not a religious person, but I definitely understand your message here.
