The Corridor To The Next Reward
Somebody close to you suddenly dies
Then it makes you wonder
Is there a God above our cloudy skies?
Somewhere down under?
You’re supposed to fervently ponder these things
On a purely spiritual level
Use your faith and with the courage it brings
Hell can boast “it has given you hell”
Using death to make you bitter
Heavenly hosts toast a fond farewell…
…And ask you to reconsider
For to be absent in the body
Is to be present with one’s Lord
Death is just a corridor
That leads to the ...
If I Were A Blue Bird
Baby if I were a bluebird
Up there perched where eagles flew
Then I would share my nest egg…
…With no one but you
Would you horde
Half bitten bird seed
And save your scavenged crumbs?
