14th February, Revisited. Be Warned

by Harry

Submitted by Scottishmomus
Go on, drive to hell and back,

Knowing you, the fires are all out,

Lucifer has claimed you for his son.

Mindful of your heritage,

He’s standing by to hear you spout,

In Hades refuge you will be reborn.

Pick your poison for the ride,

He’ll welcome you with father’s pride,

No rending of his raiment, garments torn.

Stick to highway bound for hell,

Prepare excuses you may tell,

Satan’s heard them all, so be well-warned.

Take your love to he who cares

For tales of woe you’re fond to shout,

In brimstone’s home where weird ways are the norm.

Some entertainment for his cause,

For even underground has laws,

Not many, but there is a token form.

Pay your fee, a penny fare,

No halves, returns, you’re stranded there,

Guest of hottest host for long sojourn.

Filled with valentines like you,

All lovers scorned have saved a few

Places all selected for reform.

With twist of tail, the tales you told,

All of them have grown old,

Go on, ride to hell, this day is shorn

From all the calendars you’ll view,

There’s only one eternal true,

And you, my dear, will curse that day.

Be warned!

  1. “…Go on, drive to hell and back,

    Knowing you, the fires are all out,…

    Oh my! Maybe it’s just my own mood today but…this does not sound loving and gets no more loving in the reading. This is great…

  2. I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of you reading that poem…. reads like revenge poem meets the song I will survive! I liked it, assume it was intended to provoke

  3. I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to answer. I forgot to look for comments in my poet’s corner feed. :/
    Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment on what was a slightly different out take on Valentine’s Day and how seriously some might take it if no valentine is forthcoming. I got mine. I’m good. He’s safe. πŸ™‚
