Poem about The Ferryman Of The Dead and prompt: start.

Dip A Toe In The River Styx

Welcome aboard the merry boat,

Welcome aboard the merry boat, The boat to end all fears.

Welcome aboard the merry boat, The boat to end all fears. I go by the mighty name of Charon,

Welcome aboard the merry boat, The boat to end all fears. I go by the mighty name of Charon, Now, hush, don't waste your tears.

I'm revered across mythology,

I'm revered across mythology, From Valhalla to Elysium,

I'm revered across mythology, From Valhalla to Elysium, Refrain from uttering my name,

I'm revered across mythology, From Valhalla to Elysium, Refrain from uttering my name, Unless upgrading to premium!

Now on the left, you'll see at far,

Now on the left, you'll see at far, Nothing. For we're at 'sea',

Now on the left, you'll see at far, Nothing. For we're at 'sea', Be mindful of the flesh-eating sharks,

Now on the left, you'll see at far, Nothing. For we're at 'sea', Be mindful of the flesh-eating sharks, At dusk is their killing spree!

I row my boat with honor,

I row my boat with honor, Bestowed upon me by... whoever,

I row my boat with honor, Bestowed upon me by... whoever, One way past the River Styx,

I row my boat with honor, Bestowed upon me by... whoever, One way past the River Styx, You're scared? Oh, gosh, whatever...

Here we are! The Gates of Hell,

Here we are! The Gates of Hell, Where inside awaits thy doom,

Here we are! The Gates of Hell, Where inside awaits thy doom, Now payment out, I'll accept cash,

Here we are! The Gates of Hell, Where inside awaits thy doom, Now payment out, I'll accept cash, My life's never full of gloom!

... So... here I was, sitting in the exam hall and thinking about a story to write. I had previously seen a comment where someone wanted to read something about the 'Ferryman of the Dead.'

It was until my mind became scrambled after a Spanish exam (yes, Spanish makes me loopy), that this idea came to me. Let's hope I passed or this will have been for nothing! If you don't get how it links to the prompt, it's the 'start' of their journey of death... led by the ever charismatic Charon...

Thanks for reading!
