She said: ''You forget about

the fall back position

of Christianity: 

'Limbo' 

According to the Catholic church 

all 'souls' that had no faith

but were without sin- 

ended up there.

I envisage  

countless babies 

crawling around for eternity, 

crying for their mums!''

Tommy, every now and then you do one of these. Absolute corker and worth the wait. What a finish.

This poem makes my heart feel very heavy.
It's sad to think of all those poor souls in limbo with nowhere to go.
I believe that souls in the so-named place of limbo are lost and need a little assistance to move into the light. I believe the human can enter a state of being in limbo too.
With or without sin.

Tommy I agree that Limbo is a barmy idea. The best presentation of it all I've come across is in The Great Divorce by C S Lewis

Unusual and thought provoking. I especially like your opinion of the church. My understanding of a christian after-world is that it is merely a ghost story to scare people into "acceptable" behaviour.
