Orpheus Ritual Cave Tour Guide

welcome to my office
how do you like my office?
my cave is my office?
visit as often as you need?

every day performing guide...
duties an Orpheus ritual slide...
into adventure underworld...
book if you please no priour notice?

aircon a steady 8 to 11 degrees
celsius year round to please
scenic underworld tours amaze

'modern people have funny
ways of earning money'
salary is summer job honey
