Heaven And Earth: Poems 1 To 5
Author: Colin Stewart
When George arrived he provided a heavenly clue
and John was intent to see it through
when a musical reunion was the fab thing to do
but they both had to wait for the other two!
A family picnic was underway.
Ma and Pa sat on a bale of hay
and the sound of bagpipes continued to play
as a man was hung on this sunny day!
The centre of the universe was on his slate
and the bold Galileo didn't hesitate
to free his mind from a heretical state
at the sight of cat food on his plate!
God is sticking with his plan
and God is doing what he can
but his disgruntled angels got up and ran
from the devil in disguise known as Man!
In this funeral parlour I learned to play
the melodies of Stephen Foster everyday.
Those who listened would sit and pray
and the others who didn't were here to stay!
