I wonder if flies go to heaven
And is it the same one as ours
Clearly butterflies must
To sprinkle magic dust
Otherwise who pollinates all heaven’s flowers
I wonder if cockroaches go to heaven
Do they scurry around at high speed
Do they come out at night
To give people a fright
And do they satisfy some celestial need
I wonder if frogs go to heaven
Can they croak as loud as they like there
Do a million tadpoles
Achieve individual goals
Or do they still get eaten by pike there
I wonder if rats go to heaven
Are they still an affront to the eyes
Do they scurry around
In whatever rubbish is found
Or does everything sparkle in their paradise
I wonder if bigots go to heaven
And how happily they fill their days there
Hating Blacks and Chinese
And folk who pray on their knees
Thinking that they should not be in the same place there
I wonder if we all go to heaven
And if so then what is it worth
Do we stay unfulfilled
Until we reach this next world
AnElephant prefers to live this life while he is on earth
After reading several of the reviews, I decided to try this:
not sure if there is heaven or hell.. think earth is the last resort for humans. so make a paradise in earth as long as we are here
AnElephantCant agree more
We have to enjoy this life we are given
Don’t hold your breath
And wait for death
Try to spend your time here just living
Very nice! I love how it flows from silly/funny and then it gets serious for some fine thinking, thank you!
AnElephantCant really do serious
He prefers to be sweet as honey
He is a bit of a dunce
And tried it once
And found out it just wasn’t funny
Carpe diem mon ami.
La seule certitude est celle du moment,
Et une seule vie en rose:
celle que l’on cree et vit.
Oui UnElephant sait
Mais mais mais
On pense bien sur
Des autres jours
I wonder some of that too. Gosh – if everyone is allowed in Heaven – what’s he point of being “good” here on earth. And – what really happens to anyone who doesn’t make it to Heaven – if there is a Heaven? Oh – my head hurts. I’ll just be me & see what happens – if anything…
AnElephant always tries to be good
Except sometimes when he tries to be better.
Take two aspirin, please.
Yes, I have in on good authority that they do! I checked, just to make sure! 🙂 xo
Ah, AnElephant asks and AnAngel replies.
Your wish ….
Of course flies go to heaven! Where do you think ‘good fly day’ came from?
Wow, amigo, ees terrible joke!
Badness gracias mi-mi-mi …
Love this poem! You are so talented.
You are very lucky ( and deserving ) to have found your heaven at Medville.
What a fab photo.
Thank you, m’lady, your words are always sweet music to AnElephant’s ears.
I too prefer to live ‘this’ life while I am still on earth, but I am looking forward to sooo much more in the next life! (it also keeps me on the straight and narrow!) This life ain’t heaven..There is more, that’s for sure…
AnElephant wishes you luck in the next life.
But finds this one pretty cool.
