In many mythologies and cultures, there is a concept of hell, albeit in a different format, but the general gist is the same. In some, Islamic and Greek for example, concepts, or manifestations of hell, there is a guardian, ferryman or a welcomer. This poem is a take on what the demon, angel, or multi-headed dog might say, although in a more jovial fashion than it might be in real life. Enjoy, and dont forget to browse my other stuff, even if this isnt to your taste, you might find something that is.

Welcome to the Underworld,

How do you do?

Here we have murderers,

Rapists, now you.

.

So welcome to Hell,

You're here to stay,

In this eternal damnation,

Oh its too late to pray.

.

So welcome to Hades,

You'll be here a while,

We've all kinds of evil,

And people most vile.

.

So welcome to Gehenna,

Now dont shed a tear,

You'll need all of them later,

When its more than just fear.

.

So welcome to Tartarus,

Creulty's vast lair,

Where God only knows,

What you'll find down there!
