When I heard that Pope Francis (2014) had decreed that dogs are allowed in heaven I thought about writing a poem. My thanks go to my mate Koko red dog who wrote something very similar which I have part plagiarised. The poem is set somewhere in the future.
I stand at the gates of heaven
Making a fearful din
“I know my mum is in there ” I say
” You’d better let me in”
For years I’ve roamed Subiaco
From Rokeby Road to Townshend
Now that I have traced her to your gate
“You’d better let me in”
I’ve made friends with people who fed me
and those who took me into their home
to keep my little tummy full
and ensure I was not alone
I think I’ve done with walking
I’m tired and need a rest
I want my Mum to pat me,
in the haven of heaven would be best.
Dogs no longer have to wait at Rainbow Bridge for their humans. Courtesy of Pope Francis, from today, they can enter the gates of heaven directly!
Pope Francis: Pets are allowed in paradise
December 13, 2014Mathew Murphy and Network Writers News Corp Australia
During his weekly address, Pope Francis was consoling a little boy whose dog had recently died and assured the boy th
at he would see his beloved canine again in heaven. “Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures,” he said, according to Italian news sources.
Animal groups such as the Humane Society are delighted.
KoKo has thought of a warning though
“I hope no-one leaves a WeeMail on St Peter’s shoe at the entrance! – He might change his mind about letting us in!”
Take care, Woofs from KoKo
