The POTW: Verse Til It Hurts
I've been writing up my annual Halloween story and thinking about getting an early start on the decorations this year, what with all the various distractions crawling around the house these days. OK, not actually crawling, more like flopping, but either way it's no surprise that, during my morning coffee, I found myself thinking about the fiery depths of Hell, and, more specifically, what kinds of bands would play there.
The Broken Promised Land
In Hell the highest grossing band
The groaning phantom concert grand
The shows are fraught with screaming souls
Fiendishly the songs are planned
