Welcome to Hell

by Sparrowgael

Age Group: Adult

Welcome to hell,

said the girl with the lei;

Iíll show you your room,

follow me, right this way!

The trip isnít long

as Iím sure youíll agree;

now donít wander off,

you stay right here with me!

Weíve plenty of sunshine

but you mustnít bask;

and lotís of fresh air

through your oxygen mask.

The hotel is huge!

Lots of places to roam;

just be sure that you donít

step outside of the dome!

Within you are as safe

as in your own motherís arms;

we have artificial trees

and hydroponic farms.

But outside youíll last

only minutes at most!

So relax in the grace

of your generous host!

As you age weíll repair you

with plastic and spackle;

There is no wear and tear

that is too tough to tackle!

Weíll give you long centuries

between death and birth;

weíll overextend you

just as we did the earth!

Oh, we canít have children;

itís forbidden to try.

the dead ones were lucky;

the rest couldnít die.

Theyíre out in the Wastelands

twisted and mutant;

impossible to tell

that they mightíve been human.

Now deadbolt your door,

no telling what they might do

if given the chance

to get in here with you!

If you have any needs

give room service a call.

Theyíll fulfill your desires

both the great and the small.

We have on-line access

and e-mail if you please;

personal contact is discouraged;

it spreads nasty disease!

Really small prices to pay,

donít you think?

For a race that was

so very nearly extinct.

Technology saved us

by ignoring the regsÖ

but one canít make an omelet

without breaking some eggs!

So welcome to hell

for Iím certain you know

that thereís no other place

on the earth left to go.
