Poems - The Bad Boy
Not only does it convey that being bad means you will go to hell, but it also implies that human kind is so simplistic and morally bereft that the only way for them to be kind to one another is by threatening them with burning in hell rather than appealing to ones sense of humanity.
If this was listed in the regular poem section I could see it as being a bit of a sardonic message; making fun of the simplicity of nursery rhymthes and pointing out the horror in the way that we try to get our children to obey through the veiled (and not so veiled) threats that nursery rhythmes often contain.
If this was your intent than bravo, but I fear that you are serious about creating and new nursery rhythme to tell to tell to children and that scares me. If that is so than perhaps it would be best suited under the heading of "religious" poetry.
