My Hell!

My Hell!

A Chapter by My Fair Lady

*Not a religious sermon.













“I’m going to hell.”


Eternal damnation of the worst kind.


I’m not talking about the brimstone lake,

The big mistake,

Or the fiery pit below.


I’m not talking about the fire that’s cold,

The rotting soul’s sold,

Or the place where nothing can grow.


I’m not talking about the stench of death,

The demon’s wrath,

Or the cavernous pit.


I’m not even talking about the Dark Master,

The big disaster,

Or any of the other words associated with it.


I think I have a different view,

Consider it too.

A state of mind, miseries that never end.


I think Hell is a Laundromat!

Consider that.

Never ending rows of toil… baskets of clothes to mend.


Laundromats are miserable places-

Look around at all the unhappy faces.

They say hell is what you make it.


Carry your basket, your own mess.

The task will never end. Unless…

You do your laundry naked!


I’m sure that is where I’ll end up,

No, it wont help to have anger erupt,

It is a simple fate.


Eternal scrubbing, unmatched socks,

Dirty sheets and worn out smocks.

Oh, laundry.. It is you I really hate.


Oh, how I wish for a heavenly fate,

Golden streets and mansions, pearly gate.

I’ll resolve to go to “hell” simply knowing.


That is where I think I’m bound to go.

To some awful florescent lit laundromat below.

My baskets of work ever over flowing.

This my great fair lady began as a dark and serious tale of dastardly proportion when suddenly I found myself laughing out loud as I was finally able to associate myself with your particular Hell- The florescent lit laundromat underground. An all too familiar and fiery fate which all of us can relate to. Very, very well done and with an impeccable sense of tongue in cheek humor. Wonderful. Another moment plucked from the plume of life's great stream of eternal damnation's.
I love it.

Hello M'Lady,

A soul like yours going to hell? I would doubt that could ever be, but it does seem that I could end up in a place like this. Watching the towels, undies, and blankets swirl...over and over and over....a fate worse than hell perhaps.

So very clever in it's comparison....a spiritual journey into one of the aspects of our lives that constitute hell on earth for us !! Yet there are 'heavenly aspects' as well...clean fresh clothes to keep us cool or warm...water freely available and flowing...a laundromat just around the corner !
Your depiction of the 'religious kind of hell' I would not want to encounter ever, a choice we can make while still on earth...just sayin' ~
I thoroughly enjoyed your picturesque 'hate of laundry', outstanding rhyming and flow !!
