One Big Whoop - Poem by Donal Mahoney

All over the world
folks die every day
by the thousands
sometimes the millions
what with wars
earthquakes
seiches and
tsunamis

and so He’s busy
saying hello to those
who have known
He was there
or discovered Him
just before the end
often out of fear

but can you imagine
those who thought
He wasn’t there?
What a surprise!
One big whoop
for those folks.

Let’s be candid.
Death is bad enough.
But who wants
to find Him too late
glowing in the Light
taller than His statue
in Rio de Janeiro
then see Him point,
then hear Him say,
“Please step
over there.”
