“Good” people in the September 11th 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.

For heaven’s world cannot be filled
            With proud and pompous folks,
Who claim they’re in because their sin
            Is less than common blokes.
They love to dine and sip their wine
            Assured they’re doing well;
But God is just who knows he must
            Release them into hell.
But those instead among the dead      
            Who rise to heaven’s gate,
Are they who lunged and took the plunge
            Aware they must not wait.
The horrid crimes they did at times
            Are paid and now ignored;            
But what they do from now on through
            Results in their reward.
