I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door..
Not by the beauty of it all
Not by the lights or decor..
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp
The thieves, the liars, the sinners
The alcoholics, the trash!!

There stood the kid from the seventh grade
He'd stole my lunch money twice!!
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice!!
Uncle Bob, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell..
Was sitting pretty, on cloud nine
Looking incredibly well !!

I nudged Jesus, "Hey..What's the deal,
I'd love to hear your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here
God must surely have made a mistake!!
And why's everyone so quiet...
So somber. Give me a clue."

"Hush child," said he "They're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you!!"
