As a Day Passes

As Days Passes 
On my way home after doing battle with Portuguese
bureaucracy which is something out of Kafka where
laws oppose another and a simple process can go 
on for twenty year; there was a halt in the traffic.
 A funeral procession, somber faces, dark suits and
white blouses under summer sun. And when traffic
    resumed people were driving slower than usual. 
     Thought of the notable scientist who claimed that 
    there was life after death. Of course he was vilified 
    by other scientist as they are trained not to believe 
    in what cannot be proven  I´m cynical too his assertion 
    but have lived long enough not to depreciate 
    anyone´s opinions, only for the curious reason that 
    the kingdom of souls must be a crowded place.

    Dear Jan - could it have been the motor vehicle department? I'm curious about the scientists and heaven. It's usually renegade scientists who discover truths. I'm just sayin'. That old quote, "There's always room for two more souls in heaven" comes to mind. All right, nobody said that. Nevertheless, it's always good to call ahead. sparkles
