From Hades to New Jerusalem – James Moulder, Australia

it’s a short ride to Hades
no stopping
no coming back

it’s not much of a place
but better than no life at all

Jesus went there
descendit ad inferos

he didn’t stay long
less than forty hours

he said Hades wasn’t the end of the line
he said the last stop was New Jerusalem
he said he was going to prepare a place for us

that was a long time ago
perhaps we misunderstood …..

James Moulder is a retired academic in Melbourne, Australia. His hobbies are theology and poetry.
