Eyes of black and sallow skin
He's the one who takes you in
Robed in the night wielding an oar of bone
He is the one to take you into your new home
The pitch black gondola is how you come in
For you only see him if you have committed a most heinous sin
Hope your loved one have wished you well
For you have just entered hell.
a poem about poor charon cursed to forever have the job of bringing souls to the underworld
nice poem and i also feel sorry for him
Am I the only one who feels sorry for him?
no i wrote it because i felt bad for him. a man doomed for all eternity to take souls innocent or not to the underworld a place of torture and torment. it is completely reasonable to feel sorry for him
