When you die you go to Heaven solely

Gale Acuff


to get judged, you might not get to stay there

if when God gauges your eternal soul

you flop, then He sends you down to Hell to

suffer forever, forever as in

eternally, which is even longer

and probably wider and deeper, too,

and this is part of what we believe at

church and Sunday School and if we don’t we

go to Hell so when I’m up in Heaven

dead and God’s making me out but doesn’t

find my name in the Book of Life I’ll try

soaking up as much bliss as I can and

hope it lasts a long, long time, like taffy

or Tootsie Roll if all you’ve got are gums.
