If You Die In An Elevator



If you happen to die in an elevator Be sure to push “UP” fore you go I know a man who surely panicked Pushed “DOWN”, wound up down below Tried to explain to Satan what happened Pushed the “DOWN” button by mistake The Pearly Gates was where he wanted to go Begged Satan to give him a break Said he always had lived an exemplary life Was kind and generous most times He once stole some candy from a baby though But he's tried to put that behind “Sorry,” said Satan, “I've got hold of you now Won't let you out of my sight My rules down here are strict and quite simple You pay for your sins forthright!” “But what if I can guarantee a special treat?” “What are you offering, my friend?” “A night of passion with Kim Kardashian” On his way to Heaven he did wend! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Very cute Jack.. but right now if I die in an elevator ...think I'll hit the stop button and stay right where I am for a while. You have been so kind in your responses to my writing. You are not only a great writer but a good friend to many people and I'very been on soup a few days. God Bless

    What an ingenious way to look at an elevator. Sometimes I feel that way when using one for the first time at a large hotel-the wrong button disaster!

    Dear Jack, Always you make me smile, today you make me laugh. You see when you are close to eternity, stories like these shouldn’t be taken lightly at all! I think the button down I am bound to push not by mistake but rather from guilt! SUPERB writing! Have thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you!
