Shocked in Heaven

Author unknown

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
as I entered ’s door,
Not by the of it all,
nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
who made me sputter and gasp–
the thieves, the liars, the ,
the alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
who swiped my lunch twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
was rotting away in hell,
was sitting on cloud nine,
looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, “What’s the deal?
I would to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
must’ve made a mistake.

“And why’s everyone so quiet,
so somber – give me a clue.”
“Hush, child,” He said, “they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.”
