Welcome to Hell

The heat is building past the boiling point
Melting like ice every bone and every joint
Skin is sloughing slowly off my charred skeleton
Caught in a blast that ripped the land apart, a megaton
My eyes are melting into jelly that dribbles down my cheeks
Before my sense of smell is gone I catch my burning reek
I hear tortured screams as others burn around me everywhere
Before I die, for just a moment, I think how is this fair?
Then a light so very bright burns into my ruptured eyes
I look and see on many faces an expression of surprise
We are not dead, in fact it seems we are all okay
I do not understand what’s the point of this horror game
Then booms a voice all around and drives us to our knees
“Welcome to Hell, line at the gate, and collect your wristbands please.”
