Pope John Paul II

John Paul II, Saint

Lord, I am having fun

But it really isn’t as easy as they think it is.

A little more time, Lord,

A little more time would do.


A few more steps, dear Lord,

Just a few more steps

To my Last Audience.

And then YOU can have me, Lord,

YOU can have me.


(and thereafter, the late Pope was raised up towards heaven

where the Lord has prepared for him a banquet

amongst all HIS heavenly angels and His saints.

And true to his terpsichorean training,

Karol Wojytla, now the Blessed  Pope John Paul II,

burst into the heavenly banquet hall

with skull cap askew, and with his cane a-twirling.)
