Living for the Limbo

Prompt Day #273: “Limbo” is that theological place between heaven and hell, where those who cannot qualify for either are trapped and remain, held in purgatory. Write about a character who is “planning for purgatory” – or purposely behaving in a way that he hopes will land him in Limbo after he dies.

So, admittedly, this is not a story. But I read this and the song “Working for the Weekend” started looping in my head and I could not focus on anything. No story was gonna come when my inner voice was singing “Everyone’s Living for the Limbo” so, I went with it. Sometimes it’s the only way to shut her up. Plus I’ve always enjoyed doing a little Weird Al number to songs. I know there are at least 2 other song parodies on this blog already. (One before I started this challenge called “All about that Brie” and one during this challenge that was a parody of the Goo Goo Dolls’ Iris)

Living for the Limbo

 

Heaven is watching, to see if you are true

The Devil is waiting for you

Limbo is saying, you don’t have to act so right

Death can be awesome with some foresight, foresight, Oh

 

Everybody’s living for the Limbo

Everybody wants to have a blast

Nobody wants to live life sinless

Nobody wants their soul downcast, No

You want a life after death

But you want to party with meth

You wanna sleep with a ho?

Go on baby, just Go, Go, Go!

 

Everyone’s reading the big black book to you

Everyone’s judging you, for what you do

Everyone’s sinning, taking it to the edge

The key to survival, is staying on that ledge, yeah

 

Everybody’s living for the Limbo

Everybody wants to have a blast

Nobody wants to live life sinless

Nobody wants their soul downcast, No.

You want to have an affair

Don’t wanna end up down there

You wanna make lots of dough

Don’t want to reap what you sew, no, no

 

Don’t want wings and a harp

Don’t want horns that are sharp

You wanna be in between

Babe, I know what you mean!

 

Don’t want to memorize verses

Or meet four men on horses

You want an afterlife party

Gotta shoot for purgatory! Yeah.
