His last meal eaten and final cigarette smoked, the serial killer slowly shuffled towards his execution.

“Are my parents here?' he asked.

“No,' said the chaplain as they approached the gallows.

“Has the governor rung with a reprieve?' he pleaded.

“No,' said the warden as the noose was placed round the prisoner’s neck.

“Will it… will it hurt?' he sobbed.

“No,' said the executioner as he pulled the lever to open the trapdoor to the death pit.

“Yes, it will hurt like hell,' said St Peter as he pulled the lever to open the trapdoor that led straight to Hades.
