I'm pressing a button in a steel shell

Destination a lower floor, known as hell

A place to gather the evil that dies

Sharing a lift with Anton LaVey's eyes

Sheol now decorated in flaming coals

Eerie scent of blood and heads on poles

An internet rumour is Ryanair may soon

Offer a flight at six minutes past six, every June

The dammed souls can expect critics to prey

Some crazies will only book the flight one way

Satan airport has recently increased ways it can cope

Cheekily designing the runways to spell the word Pope

Lonely planet review read; a place to visit not stay

Not a tourist destination, a place to explore in a day

The Devil is the face on the currency they use

Theexchange rate is challenging your held views

Well polished the demonic black jewel

Nobody really contests his dictatorial rule

Like Cuba, Hell often gets a bad rap

Upside is, so far it's no tourist trap

It can get hot all year round, so take sun block

You will be exposed to evil, be prepared for the shock

My poetic purpose, I guess I am here to tell

It's more than ok to spend a short vacation in hell
