Donal Mahoney- A Poem

One Big Whoop

All over the world
folks die every day
by the thousands
sometimes the millions 
what with wars
seiches and 

and so He’s busy
saying hello to those 
who have known 
He was there
or discovered Him
just before the end
often out of fear 

but can you imagine
those who thought
He wasn’t there? 
What a surprise!
One big whoop
for those folks.

Let’s be candid.
Death is bad enough.
But who wants
to find Him too late
glowing in the Light 
taller than His statue
in Rio de Janeiro
then see Him point,
then hear Him say,
“Please step 
over there.”
