The road to Hell (with Reading)

The bus rushes to hell, welcome
Under the hot blue sun it burns..
Radiator grilles with daggers
Bared their teeth in an inanimate grimace.
 
Faces are pressed against the glass, spreading,
Holes of pale faces are opened in screams
We were convinced - we should like it,
We were told: the track is without borders.
 
Hope is left only by those who enter -
There are no doors at all for the exit...
The insanely wailing sounds of motion
Bubbling host of souls is rushing to Hell.
 
The motor roars godlessly, as if to drill out,  
It tries to answer in sick brains,
If only someone could shoot at the tires
And send us to shreds in a ditch.
 
The hood smokes, panic howls in the cabin,
The eyes of madmen are obscured by darkness,
But the ancient mechanics is inescapable -
The road to Hell is long and hard,
 
And the chariot that rotates the blades
Curved knives, cutting flesh on the way,
The bus, red-hot, rushes to the abyss,
And to the end we can't get off it...
