A Pyramid Under Construction

Finally, to settle it,
The religions of the world
Set up a great tournament,

In the style of Elijah
Vs. the Prophets of Baal
Combined with the World Series

Of Poker. A pyramid
Scheme, in other words, like all
Holy and true religions.

Anyone could stake themselves,
And any faith that hung in
Might cash out above their stake,

But there could be only one
Champion faith in the end,
Beside a huge stack of souls.

The tournament was immense,
Involving all continents
(Aside from Antarctica).

The global suicide rate
Surpassed cardiac arrests.
The poor grew poorer. The rich

Made and lost fortunes in bets
On the side. Oh, but who won?
Too early to tell, just yet.
