This amusement was written for D’Verse’s prompt to write 144 words of prose that must include this line from Shel Silverstein’s poem, Invitation. ‘If you’re a dreamer, come in.’
If you are a dreamer, come in to Beelzebub’s Emporium of Chance here at the Hades Hotel in downtown Inferno. Every day’s your lucky day when you visit us. We’ve got Hot Slots, Ring of Fire Roulette, BBQ Blackjack, Jalapeno Keno and Red Hot Poker (hands so sizzling even Texans can’t hold ‘em). Take advantage of our free drinks service, including Lava on the Rocks, Tequila Sunburn and Devilled Daquiri. When you’re hungry, drop in to our Hara Kiri Curry House or our Eternal Charcoal Grill, at the end of Barefoot Fire Walk. If you need a nap, go up to your Personalised Rack Room and stretch out for as long as you need. Short on cash? Not a problem. Our Soul Seller Tellers will be only too happy to help out. Yes, for that complete Holiday from Hell, we have every taste covered.
