Prayers Will Not Save You - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though the religious and well intended for your salvation pray
'Tis you and you only for your sins will pay
All the prayers of your friends will not save you from Hell
If at the expense of others in life you've done well
What goes around comes around life is this way
For our wrongs against others our price huge to pay
Our assets in money over time may grow
But like 'tis said of Karma we reap what we sow
If there's a hereafter no need for her or him for to pray
If in life they have treated all others okay
But if they have lived by deception prayers them from Hell will not save
That is if there is a life beyond the grave
If you've treated others badly though you've done financially well
Prayers will not save you from the supposed after life Hell.
