+ Fav Poet


Come pay the ferryman,
At Armageddon's final stand.
Charon's palm open wide,
Soliciting payment to other side.

A swim on river Styx too vast,
So frigid, a soul wouldn't last.
Waters poisoned with shame,
Driving the dead insane.

Fresh souls pay the ferryman,
Holding out his skeletal hand.
Remove the toll coin from a tongue,
Your journey has then begun.

Don't cheat yourself of a ride,
There isn't another way to Elysian side.
Impoverished wonder ever-more,
Supplicated at Hades shore.
