bSt. Peter's Lie Clock

The man died and went to heaven-
At the Pearly Gates before St. Peter
He saw a hug wall of clocks, and he
asked St. Peter, 'what are they? '
St. Peter answered, 'everyone on earth
has a clock, the hands move every time
they lie.' 'oh', said the man, whose clock
is that? ' That is Mother Teresa's., and the
hands have never moved for she never
told a lie. 'Incredible, ' said the man, and
whose clock is that? ' St. Peter responded,
'that is Abraham Lincoln's clock, the hands
moving only twice for he told only two lies in
his life.' 'Incredible, said the man, do you
have George Bush's clock? ' St. Peter replied,
'It is in Jesus's office, he is using it as a
ceiling fan! '

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
