Hell's New Renovation: a Satirical Poem

Updated on August 5, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Hey, did you happen to hear about the devil's new invention?

Some are saying he got old and can't take all that heat

but he installed air conditioning in hell with an ulterior intention

to make it more competitive with that heavenly retreat.

So ever since a whole bunch of politicians are doing their best

to qualify for hell putting their name on that waiting list

competing with criminals, thugs, and all the rest

including here and there a boy-loving priest.

With all lust and vice and similar attractions

hell is becoming more of a place to retire

all one has to do is avoid any decent actions

and nothing else that application would require.

I used to be indifferent about my final trip

even eager to try converting the dude with fork

but now this plan is something I gladly skip

company of politicians I'll replace with some good folk.

So, see you up there, unless you'll be too busy

carrying the luggage of your political ace

while in this meantime let's all take it easy

and each practice on earth for our chosen last place.

      This is a sad but very accurate commentary on the situation in some places today, Val. It does seem that the dude with a fork is going to get a lot more company (metaphorically speaking).
