At The Styx


As I ran
for the
school bus
something in
my shoe
hurt my foot.

But I got
on the bus
and we drove
off. A huge
truck slammed
into us.

I never found
out who'd taken
the wrong light...
I was dead
and going thru
a dark tunnel.

An old guy
beside a boat
awaited me.
A vast silver
river filled
a cavern.

I could see
a Paradise island
some distance
down the river.
The waiting man
asked for a coin.

I don't have
one I told him.
He pointed to
a fiery cave.
Go there
he commanded.

I was horrified
but had a sudden
surge of hope.
I took off my shoe.
There on a silver disc
'In God We Trust.'

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
