Even their priests misunderstood the gods
Thinking they cared how worshippers might pray
or that they'd help the dead go forth by day
into the western lands. What are the odds

that they'd have time to care, caught in their dance
of incest, murder, rebirth, love and rape,
whether some human sinner might escape
eternal punishment? You take your chance

and maybe all the spells you bought can bribe
your way past judgement. Or you might be good
and all your many noble deeds just could
balance the scale for you. Or not. The tribe

of beast-heads, sun gods, river gods,don't care
a bit for all your endless petty prayer!
