Hell Has Little Hope of Happiness
|Music: Santa Maria Amar.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark, at The Internet Renaissance Band.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Hell has little hope of happiness.
A devil is eternally on fire,
Locked within unquenchable desire,
Longing with hatred for lost holiness.
On Halloween the devils and the dead
Wander through the world as though to warn
Each soul of an eternity forlorn,
Evangelists condemned to speak through dread,
Nightmares that must preach through pain till dawn.
