A Train of Ghouls going to Hell
A train of ghouls on their way to Hell
were questioning their fate…
“Who made us ghouls anyway?
Did our Creator make some mistake..?”
One reached over and asked the other
If he had enjoyed his ghoulish ways?
Was anything close to worth it
To pay like this at the end of days?
“Well shape-shifting was pretty nice,
I could be anything or anyone I ate.”
“One time I ate a fly, but truly by accident
On a wall, I heard plans for an Apple Update.”
“I was sick of lunching on corpses
and always afraid of losing my head.
I could never enjoy a bit of sunlight
I was just half alive but mostly half dead.”
“Does anyone wonder how we all died together?
It seems a coincidence we did the same day,
and who chopped off our noggins in unison
and who put us on this train to begin with, anyway?”
Then the conductor came through their car
“Tickets to Hell please” He stopped, making sure they had paid.
“Oh I don’t have a ticket,” “Nor do I,” each exclaimed,
Thrown off at the next stop, they kissed their fate, giggling, they ghouled away.
