The ironic Inferno

Humour? The choice is yours.

A strange place where the heat is frightening

Consumes your heart with immense sorrow.

How astonishing to see all these shadows

After all this time without ever cheating.

Rivers of lava and lost souls, you must be too.

It's not what you think, too expensive to pay.

All the confessions of your sins that fly away.

You thought about it, but only faith taught you.

I'll be waiting for you there, as will all humanity.

Give me your hand if you're alone

And in the blue flames, on your soul stone

I will relieve all your torments for eternity.

Hell, Heaven if this faith persists.

Let's pray, both of us, that they don't exist.
