Funny How

I’ll make sure

to leave a tip in heaven

large and generous

for once

If heaven has Bars

when would they close

late or early

Funny how memory

is selective

a way to build strength

do you remember

a sense of memory

if everything is eternal

comfort in mortality

I hope Heaven has no after effects

no Vietnam flashbacks
no dirty politician hacks

If I had a choice

I might chose Hell

who needs wings

when you have fire

but if Heaven

has a good bartender

I’ll start a tab

a cute waitress

I’ll be sure to stiff her.
