ten things he does not want you to do

Religion has actually convinced people
that there’s an invisible man.
Living in the sky.
Who watches
everything you do
every minute
of every day
of your life.

And he has a list of ten things
he does not want you
to do.
And if you do any,
any, of these ten things,
he has a special place
full of fire and smoke and ash and torture
where he will send you
to suffer and burn
and scream and cry
forever and ever
until the end of time. …

But he loves you.

George Carlin ( 1937-2008 ) “There Is No God”, You Are All Diseased (1999)
