Caveat Emptor

he sold his soul
to God

God paid him
good money for it

if you can’t rely
on God’s money

whose money
can you rely on

God’s a good banker
he doesn’t charge

much interest
his henchmen

knock kindly
on your door

if you try to use
the soul you’ve sold

sure they might
rough you up a bit

threaten your wife
and children

but they
mean well

and of course
they come with God’s blessing

This is an interesting take on selling a soul to God instead of the Devil, I like it!
