Song for the Rapture

They tell me today is the rapture
And animals don’t get to go.
If dogs aren’t going to heaven,
I’m staying with Joe.

They tell me that cats don’t get taken–
No, nothing with meow or with purr.
If Katya-cat will not be going,
I’m staying with her.

And fish–I guess fish don’t go either.
No matter how fervent my wish.
If Lalwant Singh won’t be there with me,
I’ll stay with the fish.

Praying for joy and eternal happiness to everyone who goes in the rapture tomorrow–if it happens. Me, it isn’t heaven if everybody doesn’t get to go.

WRITING PROMPT: Your character thinks he/she will go in the rapture but doesn’t, or thinks he/she won’t go but does. OR your character is shocked at who goes and who is left behind.

    A perfect verse. Rhymes fall naturally. I’m not good with rhymes but let them fall if they will.

    I’m with you on this! Don’t want to get raptured if the animals I love, that belong to my children, aren’t raptured either. I’ll wait!
