Free One Way Ticket

March 30, 2020

To heaven

All you have to do

Is get deathly sick

From a branded bug

A virulent strain of Covid

A better gamble

Then lottery ticket odds

Yet, there is no money

To be won or spent

Just a 2 % chance that

If you don’t “survive”

To build immunities

Against it, then you get

To meet God in heaven

Amongst the clouds

Harps and cherubs

Which must not be

All it’s cracked up to be

As everyone is

Doing everything

Not to get a ticket


Perhaps then

Since no one

Wants to go to

The “real” heaven

We could all make

A concerted effort

To make what

We have here now

More of a heaven

On earth so to speak

“Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We’ll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth”

– Belinda Carlisle

Treat each other as

We might treat Yahweh God Allah

You know……..

With reverence and respect

One, disguised as the

Person that was “walled” off

The person with

“Different” colored skin

(My guess is, it will not be pink)

One that “speaks” funny

(My guess is, it will not be “English”)

A language of love

Compassion and understanding

While contemplating

“What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us?
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His (or Her) way home?

If God had a face
What would it look like?
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that

You would have to believe
In things like Heaven and in
Jesus and the saints
And all the prophets? And…”

“One Of Us”

– Joan Osborne
