When the show on earth is over and the master says

“time to go the angels here in heaven are waiting for

your show” we must go on as he beckons, we must

quickly crouch and fl y for he knows our show is needed

for children in the sky.

Yes there’ll be carnivals in heaven, with bright lights

and fun galore, and the organ will sound sweeter like

you’ve ever heard before. There’ll be Eli wheels and

scramblers merry-go rounds for wee ones too God,

himself, the supervisor, and we carny folk the crew.

The angels on the “jinny” ride playing music pure and

sweet for the cherubs on the horses galloping round

on wooden feet, there’ll be popcorn and cotton candy,

with just a deeper pink, perhaps a little sweeter since

it’s made in heaven don’t you think.

The “jump” from earth to heaven will be the greatest

one of all, without a single breakdown, with no truck

motor to stall, so let’s make the show a good one,

while here on earth we dwell so when we set up in

heaven God will say
