Like a World Scorned 

Hell hath no fury. 

That’s it,

that’s all there is

to the line. 

Hell hath no fury

because we do

the dirty work

for it. 

Hell has no time

for fury–

it’s too busy

watching from 

the sidelines

as we dole out 

enough furies

and fates

and checkmates

for the demons

of this world 

and the next. 

The superstitions 

we deny and 

the ghosts we 

exorcise trudge

their way through

our memories

of what’s been

and our hearts 

of what’s to come. 

So speak not

of Hell and its

mood swings

when there’s 

enough to worry

about right

here on Earth.
