Susan Hawthorne #86 five rivers, Acheron

finding my way through
the five rivers
of the underworld
not easy rivers to navigate
paradise might not be within reach
I ask    whose paradise is it?

before I enter the underworld
I want to talk to Charon
that old ferryman
an equal opportunity program
has been in place
it's a ferrywoman this time
she's taken the old name
has to    it comes with the job
she ferries me across the Acheron
I weep and weep
and weep some more
a lake of tears
the woes of all
who have died before me
