criminal element

The Journey to Hades
is not at all As you expected.
The grubby Chariot did not await;
you had to Hustle to catch it,
leaving your Peonies behind.
You could have employed Those
to counter the Fornicators
commemorating your Descent.
Do Flowers bloom in the Underworld?
You will find out Soon Enough.

"New York Subway" by Laurie Kolp

This weekend's challenge to the Real Toads features the photography of fellow Toad Laurie Kolp. Laurie's photography tells a story as surely as her words do--please be sure to check out her photos and her poems.
