Hades Cocktail

 

The revolving door swings round rapidly.
     Trapped within every swirl is a different being.
     Some happy, some sad.
     Some fat, some extremely thin.
     A few look haggard and depressed – obsessed in their own worlds.
     Occasionally the door presents a smiling face – one who loves life and humanity.
     He greets all with a touch of his hat and friendly greeting.
     No discrimination is applied.
     ‘Welcome to the Hotel Styx’ he says.
     ‘Let this be the beginning of your next journey’
     Entering the lobby a scream is quite common as they see Charon waiting to ferry them to their final resting place.
