Preparing for His Finals

Preparing For His Finals


He sits in his lonely room

rosary and prayer book in hand

knows his end is near.

Friends he had now long gone,

he held himself above them

superior intellect

he laughed at their beliefs

in a God and heaven

and especially Hell.

Now that his death is sure

he wonders could he have been wrong

perhaps he thinks he made a mistake

to judge them all so quickly,

he should pave the way to cover his bases.

So each night he reads the bible

says a rosary every hour

watches mass on TV

reads a prayer to be prepared

in case there is a God in heaven.

he spends his days and nights

preparing for his finals.
