Save Your Own Soul Mister - Poem by Francis Duggan

Save your own soul mister since you cannot save mine
And if I'm doomed forever well that suits me fine
To your way of thinking you will not convert me
Though with to each their own you could never agree.

That you are a good person I never could doubt
But with your way of thinking I can live without
To your God or any God I do not pray
But what you do with your life with me is okay.

You want to save my soul from hell you do say
But if there's a hereafter for my own sins I will pay
An atheist or an agnostic or call me what you may
But of one thing I'm certain I must die one day.

What happens to me is beyond your control
And you have enough to do for to save your own soul
I'm just your average bloke who pens doggerel
And you do not scare me with your talk of hell.
