UPDATE: Hellacious haiku...

UPDATE UPDATE: VOTING has been extended until noon Friday.

Sparrow's topic for this week's Haiku Challenge is:

_________________ HELL ________________

UPDATE: We have until 11 pm Thursday to VOTE for the favorite.
(whatever you do, do not try to vote for me. go to Sparrow's
to find out why. Such a sweetie she is.)

and, remember... the prize is a Deluxe Care Package
sent to one of our soldiers in harm's way. The soldiers'
names are found through

hell is here when you
are not. I am tortured in
your absence. Come back.

we make our own. Hell
be known even in sunlight.
Sprouts from seeds of lies.

No heaven without
hell. No rose without its thorns.
No life without death.

Bless me Father for
I have sinned. Will confession
save my soul again?

Mea culpa all
you wanta. Confession might
forgive. Not forget.

Don't be too quick to
judge others' tribulations.
It's almost your turn.

I don't want to know
what Hell is like. I've got dibs
on Purgatory.

When you get there, call
me so I'll know what to pack.
Might need to shop first.

Hell would be being
made to listen to disco
all day, every day.
