  • They don't cash cheques in heaven.

    They don't cash cheques in heaven
    they don't do two for one,
    you can't join the queue for a bargain
    that's not how things are done.
    You might be rich in this here life
    and have enough money for your trophy wife
    drive a big car and have diamonds galore
    but you'll be as poor as me,
    at that final door.
    There's no bargain basement in heaven
    you'll get all you want on one floor
    and there's no sneaking in through the back,
    they've only got the one door.
    You'll not get past this doorman
    with bribery or deceit,
    he's not interested in money
    or any kind of receipt.
    They don't cash cheques in heaven
    they've got no dimes in their till
    they don't do special offers,
    just a straight forward decent deal.

          Sweet!
          I wonder: does me wanting to see them weep at this final door compromise my decency or could I get away with calling it a sense of justice? In any case, nice write, docstorm!

          P.S. Your entertaining skills should be rewarded with a big fat cheque!
          I'd write you one right now if it weren't for the fact that my favourite golden pen's just been sent to the jeweler
          to add some Swarovski bling and both my butlers happen to be ill...
          I'll have no choice but to punish them for this missed opportunity as soon as they are out of the hospital.
          Nothing else I can do about it right now...
          Hard knock life, right? Rain check?

                Sounds like something relating to greed, and what would occur if a man of avarice did ascend to heaven one day and thinks he can still live a lavish life up there, but will not. Nicely written and to the point

                  Hello docstorm, come judgement day...! All men are created equal and as many seem to forget, don't die equal, it's what happens in between, the chaff from the wheat, if you like. I very much enjoyed reading this -' they don't cash cheques in heaven', says it all and done so in fine rhyme. Very well done indeed. Regards, Tony.
