Heaven - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

May the Lord be my shepherd
you can guide me to heaven
I would never be saved
if it were not for you.

But I ask you my Saviour
will you please ascertain
that the one they call Shepherd
stay asunder from you.

I don't know how in heaven
we will all get along
once we meet all the gangsters
and the ones with no schlong.

I'll apply for the work as
the cleaner of rubbish
thus the chance will apply
they will tumble from heaven
let the bygones go by.

    methinks you are God-forsaken...one must first have a soul lest it be judged. (Report) Reply

    Humor is one of the best sources of God, of course, that could mean that AJS is the almighty! ;) (Report) Reply
