Limerick.50. Heaven's Justice - Poem by Valsa George

He stood so shocked at Heaven’s door
Not by its splendor nor its décor
But by the folks already in
Those who had very many sin
Pick pockets, prostitutes, rogues and more

    this is a lovely limerick! Man is judgemental - in his view pickpockets, .. are sinners and should not be in heaven. God has analysed their cases on merit -why so and so is a pickpocket, or a prostitute.. and on merit allowed them in. Our hero, may not be upto the mark! (Report) Reply

    Goes to show that the divine judgement of God which scrutinizes mind and heart of man, is beyond three dimensional comprehension of even the wisest of men. Poignant piece of poetry nicely brought forth with spiritual insight. Thanks for sharing Valsa. (Report) Reply

    Good sarcastic limerick. That is why perhaps it is called heaven - everyone can flourish. (Report) Reply

    Pick pockets, prostitutes, rogues and more, even your friend Akhtar Jawad, are helpless before the fate. We know nothing but He knows everything! (Report) Reply
