I SPEND TIME WITH THE LONG DEAD

I have a great interest in history
Could the word be be well spelt
Herstrory
I too go throue the gates of Hades
The Ferryman takes me there and back again
Takes not his due - though I have offered
One day he will of curse in time he will
Hold out his or will be her, skittle bony hand
His face lays hid under his cowl
Many times I have spent with dead listening
To there many story's how they had lived
And died - and why they did so
I'm just a visitor - for now that is!
The smells are that of old dusty books
I have read this many a year

Some day I will go through the gates of Hades
Then I will bided to sit down on comfy stone
For all eternity
Awaiting some to seek me out
To listen to what I have to say
Take my book down to read

Hades: "Ken D. Williams?"

Ken: "Aye. Ken D. Williams, Wordsmith of Thanet."

Hades: "Uhm... you're not supposed to be here. You took the wrong turn, my good man."

That's what came to mind when I read this ;) Enjoyed your story, thanks.
