Note on the players: Dante Bill is an allusion to his namesake from the Inferno; Mark Twain acts as Virgil, his writer-guide through hell. Neither has been consigned there.

Genre: Partial Epic
Word Count: 99

Dante Bill (colorful rapper): Dude, where’s the fire and brimstone? It’s freezing cold here.

Mark Twain (dead white male): Hell’s different from place to place.

What’s with the shrines there?

Shrines? Oh, toilets. That’s for . . . .

Yeah, why the big deal?

They’re the only ones in this area.

That stinks, man! Crowds of woke politicians and their virtue-signaling kool-aid drinkers jumping up and down like yo-yo’s. They could just go in the woods.

Problem is, it’s against the rules. Their punishment is that they have to follow the sign.

Where does it point?

To Satan’s toilet.

The unearned splendor of being means we can always meet on a common plane of gratitude, aiming in conversation, art, or writing towards “something understood.”

  1. A very creative spin you put on the image, Dora, and I like the genre you put it in. Philip Jose Farmer wrote a series of books about people waking up along a river when they die. Each death you never knew who you would be waking next to…

  2. Dear Dora,

    Interesting image of hell. Personally, I think it’s more like a sports bar lined with flat screens with various games being broadcast and peanut shells scattered on the floor. 😉 If you haven’t seen this Twilight Zone…this is the ending to one of my favorite episodes.

    Shalom u’vracha,
