AFTER DEATH – A Poem

What happens when a person dies?

The body remains and the soul flies.

Flies to where?

Nobody knows……

Guesses, surmises everyone throws!

Beliefs galore that it goes to God,

Where Almighty spares not the rod!

To hell he sends the corrupted ones

Heaven’s reserved for those chosen.

“Wicked” souls abound in hell

Scream, cry, in pain they yell.

Some are hung upside down

Roasted, till they turn brown.

Some are lynched with eyes blown

Others are boiled in oil cauldron!

Heaven bound souls enjoy the bounty

Liquor and fruits and milk plenty.

“Hoors”* shower with never ending love

Massage and bathe in perfumed tubs.

Scare of hell and hope for heaven

Provides the people with enough motivation.

To curb their selfish lustful desires

And be good Samaritans till they reach pyres.

Futile rituals with body remain

Out of which the souls nothing gain.

Elaborate procedures we have designed

Dead are buried or to flames consigned.

Some embalm the mortal remains

Others create a watery grave;

Oblivious to the truth that’s all in vain

Whatever we do the truth remains;

Dust we are and to dust return

Whether we bury or whether we burn.

*Hoors—beautiful girls.
