Christian laziness in the 9/11 epic poem

The Following is an excerpt from chapter 8 of the September 11th Epic Poem. The rough draft was written between June 2008 and May 2010. It is 2,000 lines long and has 1,499 rhyming pairs.

This truth is worst for humans forced
            To spend their deaths in hell,
But even they who get away
            Don’t always do it well.
You’d think the youths who knew the truths
            Would learn before they’re old,
That ev’ry snore will cost them more
            Than pots of bullion gold.
If you believed the Maker grieved
            Each time you did a sin,
Then would you not give half a thought
            To stifling lusts within?
If deeds of worth you did on Earth
            Would help the second you,
Could you at least before you’ve ceased
            Find something good to do?
