God does not accept bribes

The following is an excerpt from chapter 17 of the September 11th Epic Poem. The poem was written between June of 2008 and May of 2010. It is 2,000 lines long and has 1,499 rhyming pairs.

The deeds we’ve done beneath the sun
            Are filled with hate and vice.
Where justice stands the law demands
            That someone pays the price.
The laws decree a penalty
             Your heart knows very well:
That in the end you’ll have to spend
            Eternity in hell.
Now most will fight against this plight
            By sometimes doing good.
They’ll feed the poor who find their door
            Because they know they should.
But still their souls are bursting full
            With doubts they can’t describe,
As fingers grope to find some hope 
            That God accepts their bribe.
