Haha, so I take it this is a merit contest again? Glad to see Gantic the ol' rhymebender come out of the woodwork.

@Parsat     Not quite.

@PureTrouble     Why? I wrote it in ~20-30 minutes with limited editing, and that's just editing to limit the number of nonsensical lines while maximizing assonance, consonance, and alliteration and maintaining meter. Hear the assonance, consonance, and alliteration in Poe! Seriously, you'll never look at Poe the same.

Here's mine.

Judgement Day

I heared the Eternal Bell's sing.

On the brink of Hell,
on the edges of Heaven,
in the black devious Stigyan,
I listened.

The ****ed shouted.
Cried.
Cursed.

The blessed singed.
Celebrated.
Condemned.

Cristalline. Pure. It begins. The Eternal Bell's singin'.

To the left, only black.
Madness.
Evil.
Fire.

To the right, only white.
Purity.
Good.
Ice.

I see it. Almost material. The sound is spreading.

Charon is rowing.
Indifferent.
Unhopeful.
Eternal.

He hears the bell. He changes.
Interessato.
Hopeful.
Ending.

Souls are swarming. Like flies. Like water. Like leafs.

Where will I go?
Hell?
Paradise?
Purgatory?

Only that bell knows...

---------------

I done this without checking anything. Runned low on time.

From the context, I assume it's dam*ed? The link just leads to a page stating that "***" is not in the English language.

Yeah, you're right. Exactly that.

Technically, yes, but since I live in PST, I'll take it if it's on time for me.
