The Land of the Dead

Time is a passing thing, and we slowly decay
And soon we will all pay the Acheron toll.
Give Charon your coin, save room for water,
You will have to drink from the Lethe
To forget all your frustration and pain
And stay a while in the Land of the Dead.

Before long, you will soon forget the rush
And who is early or late for what,
And you will see that time is merely an illusion
And there is only Hades, with his grim face
As the Reaper stares deep into your cold, lifeless eyes
To collect your soul, and take it from here
For a long retirement in the Land of the Dead.

Author's Notes:

There wasn't a real category for this, so I just stuck it in Horror. Bleh.

I placed a lot of Greek Mythology in here, so for those who don't know it... you might wanna look some of it up.

Gah... if this was Prose, my second half there would be classified as a run-on sentence.
