Lake Of Fire - Poem by Buxton Shippy

A new fishing well we need
Only vultures belong here
This place is unquenchable
Maggots feast on human remains
Is it Hades? Is it Gehenna?

Our bellies are rotted
We exhale fire
We do not belong here
Not even dogs
Darkness permeates this place
Where is the peace
Where is the quite
Is it Hades? Is it Gehenna?

Men and women
Some old some young
Populate this dump
Skeletons erect
Skins on the ground
There is no water
People drink puss
Even though flesh burns
There is no ashes
Is it Hades? Is it Gehenna?

O God why are we here?
'It's the decisions you made'
Give us another chance
We'll even sing on the choir
Too bad
Too late
This is the lake of fire
