    One Sunday ‘morn I heard the bells
    ringing on a carousel.
    Horses shaking out their deathbell;
    each a lonely sentinel.
    Rushing life to death pell-mell;
    straight into the arms of Hell.

    Hi Smile Pretty:

    The phrase everbody else can go to hell kept running through my mind. I wasn't feeling too well. Still aren't. But anyway.....decided I wanted to do something with it in a poem. I also quickly decided I wanted every line to rhyme. It took about 3 minutes to write and just took on a life of it's own; like it wrote itself. I think carousel bells ARE a lonely sound and that life does carry you on into death. So, that's where it came from.
