Some mornings I wake up thinking
The Egyptian was right! Heaven
Is surely made of smoke! But then
I start wondering, After all, the Irishman
Saw a cold and rook delighting Heaven
While the Bible builds it of gold
And pearls, jasper and crystal
A vast Faberge egg, lovely but not
Much use if youre hungry. Perhaps
The American soldier had it right
Saying Heaven and Hell and Hoboken
Have much in common.
