God's Pie in the Sky

God's Pie in the Sky

Pie tasted so yummy and wouldn't you know
Second piece too I really, surely loved so
And the more of the pie that I did eat
I found out last piece had grown four feet.

Last piece walked away through my door
And it could never be found any more
So my lovely wife and I both together
Decided that we would bake another.

This was even better than the first one
And I ate it all and when I was done
A cavity did appear on one tooth;
I wasn't happy because this was uncouth. 

I again never did eat another piece
And as days of my life started to increase
I did die and went to heaven one day
To see God and His pies He had on display.

His was surely much better than mine;
Now in heaven every time when I dine
I ask for God's great pie in the sky;
And "YOUR WELCOME" always is His reply.

    Amazing. Over 450 other poets have read this poem and I have only received one response. Different, isn't it. Jim Horn

    I like the concept. I like how you use pie to show God's character. Def a 7

    Bless you my child. You have such a conscientious and friendly face. Every time I see your picture I pretend that you are reading one of your poems to me. Jim Horn
