Travel Brochure

I flick the pages, wonder
if a tour of Hell with Virgil
as a guide would go down well.
A circle every day, full board,
surprise old friends and chat;
there’s nothing wrong with that.
And all that suffering and shit!
Better than a thousand sermons.
Yes, a trip into the depths
might do us sinners good, provide
some warmth on February days
before we reconnect with our en suites
and follow earthly ways.

    Mmmm… I’ve been pondering Di’s suggestion of losing the last two lines. At first I disagreed but now I’m not so sure. I query ‘sinners’ – surely it would do everybody good!

    Circle – circuit?

    Great idea – funny and concise.
