Hell

I am not entirely certain
that I believe in the place they call hell.
But let’s just for one moment suppose
that I do believe in such a place.
I think that I’d choose eternity in hell
over the other place.
On one condition:

The devil would have to supply marshmallows.

Well actually all of the fixings
to make never-ending s’mores.

It would not be so bad then.
Would it?
I can see myself now.

Sitting around a blazing fire all day
making s’mores with some of the most interesting people
to have ever walked the planet.

I am mainly inspired to write by everyday happenings or feelings, and I often write with some humour or sarcasm. My travel experiences have also influenced my writing, some of my favourite places to travel have been Cuba, Tanzania, Uganda, and South Africa. I was born in Canada but I am now living and teaching in the Middle East. Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions on any of my poems. more…
